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.)
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.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all courses will be conducted via online streaming. We will be providing participants with the relevant materials prior to the course. When the COVID-19 situation improves in the near future and this course is able to be conducted face-to-face, we will update course registrants accordingly.
