Free masterclass: Recognising and protecting Intellectual Property (IP)

Staff are invited to attend a masterclass led by HGF, global intellectual property rights specialists, to help you understand the complexities of IP and what this means for your research on Tuesday, 1 October 2019, 12pm – 2pm, in the Life Science Accelerator Building.

This session is the first in a series of events organised by the IP teams at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and the University of Liverpool, working alongside the Centre of Excellence in Infectious Diseases Research (CEIDR).

  • Avoid some common IP pitfalls
  • Identify the best route to protecting IP
  • Understand the patent process and freedom-to-operate
