This half day workshop will provide an in depth look at intellectual property for medical technologies, its exploitation and how it can be protected. In particular, the workshop will focus on the difficult issue of disclosure, using discussion, group work and relevant med-tech case studies to reinforce the learning from a practical point of view.
This session is designed for research staff and students with an interest in medical technologies innovation, looking to use social media professionally as an individual. The day will introduce participants to managing and raising their professional profile through the use of traditional and social media; and communicating research and its significance outside academia. In an era where we are globally connected through digital and social media, self-promotion is a skill that modern academics must develop to raise the profile of their research and gain maximum impact for their work.
This one-day workshop will explore all aspects of the medical device development process. For example: Why good ideas fail – Budgetary issues; IP; the wrong team; commercially not viable; technology obsolescence; misleading or unachievable outcomes; not understanding the process; not being receptive to change.
