Intellectual Property & Career

‘Intellectual property: an opportunity for your career!’

Take intellectual property into account as early as possible!

And call upon the experts available at the university.

In a nutshell, what are 4 good practices for researchers in terms of intellectual property?

  • They should keep as much evidence of their work as possible, in order to guarantee their results can be traced back to them (ideally using a laboratory notebook)
  • They should not divulge their results until they are properly protected, and control all communications verbal and writtenwith third parties
  • They should look up their institution’s intellectual property rights policy
  • They should contact their university’s IP experts and technology transfer officers
