Navigating IP Issues in R&D Collaborations

Learn to address the intellectual property management (IPM) considerations that arise in R&D collaborations, in this newly-developed course!

Understand the fundamentals of IP management and how it can help to extract value from R&D, the various models of IP ownership and their implications, and risk-mitigation in R&D collaborations.

Participants will be provided with a toolkit of helpful resources to help them navigate the IPM issues and queries they may face after the course.

Participants are assumed to have some basic knowledge of the various types of IP. Otherwise they are strongly encouraged to attend the IP/IPM Course for Public Agencies prior to attending this course.

As this course makes references to relevant government Financial Circular Minutes (FCMs), this course is only open Public Agencies* officers involved in publicly-funded R&D activities.

[*Public Agencies refers to Ministries, Organs of State, Departments, Statutory Boards, Institutions of Higher Learning, publicly-funded research institutes, academic medical centres and hospitals, and other Government or public corporatised entities.]
