R&D collaborations present unique challenges for IP Management. The National IP Protocol (NIPP) and Master Research Collaboration Agreement (MRCA) seek to assist public agencies in navigating some of these issues. Familiarise yourself with the principles of the NIPP and common agreed terms in the MRCA through this newly-developed course! The course will engage participants through class discussions of case studies and scenarios which illuminate each of the principles in the NIPP.
Participants will be provided with a toolkit* of helpful resources to help them navigate the IPM issues and queries relating to R&D which they can refer to even after the course. (*The toolkit is shared with the course on “Navigating IP Issues in R&D Collaborations” programme.)
This course is recommended for legal counsels, researchers, principal investigators, engineers, project officers / managers, research grant administrators / managers, technology transfer officers, and other officers across public agencies, who handle matters involving IP in R&D.
Participants are assumed to have some basic knowledge of the various types of IP and fundamentals IPM knowledge relating to R&D. Otherwise they are strongly encouraged to attend the IP/IPM Course for Public Agencies prior to attending this course. Participants may consider attending Navigating IP Issues in R&D Collaborations course if they would like to know more on managing IP created in a collaborative arrangement and its risk management.
