The Kiwi Innovation Network working in partnership with The Science for Technological Innovation National Science Challenge (SfTI) are pleased to bring you:

IP Discovery Workshop Series

Provides IP training for emerging researchers keen to learn more about Intellectual Property and specifically patent searching.

Focus on conveying:

  • Reasons for searching, e.g. technical knowledge, competitor intelligence, novelty (patentability) searching, Freedom to Operate FTO.
  • An understanding of when in the academic research timeline is good to do patent searching and when your TTO should be engaged
  • How to do meaningful searching for technology in their area of research
  • The different types of patent searching and how this can evolve from landscape searches to novelty to freedom-to-operate (FTO)
  • The benefits of doing patent searching for their current academic position
  • How patents or commercialisation are “recognised” as academic work outputs
  • How publication and commercialisation are balanced and what strategies can be used to manage this effectively

Venue: Online
Format: Three one hour sessions (12pm-1pm) with optional Q&A time

Dates: 13, 20 and 27 March 2024
Registrations Close: 5 March 2024
