Intellectual property strategy: what is it and how to use it?

Welcome to the Entrepreneur in Residence Masterclass Series 2022.

In this 2022 Translational Masterclass Series, Dr Nessa Carey, Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Oxford, will take you through a series of chosen topics, key questions and workshops to help you further your understanding of translational research and innovation. After each session, you will be equipped with a framework and toolkit that will help you drive your translational research successfully, increase your ability to engage the right stakeholders at the right time, and access the funding you need to further your research and drive change, whether that is early stage translational funding, translational fellowships or secure private investment.

Format: For each topic, a video will be released on the TRO website one week ahead of a virtual workshop. Each workshops will run for 60 min, during which participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the topic and apply the gained knowledge to their own project.

In this first session, we will explore the topic of intellectual property.

Intellectual property strategy: what is it and how to use it?
Protecting intellectual property (IP) is fairly straightforward. Protecting it in a way that is actually useful to you is much more complicated. This Masterclass will focus on helping you think strategically to create IP portfolios that are practical, appropriate and defensible.

Structure: Watch a 15-20 minute video in your own time, and complete the suggested exercises. After this, attend a 60-minute online interactive workshop where you’ll share experiences, refine your approaches, learn additional skills and create personalised development plans.
