The UK IPO has recently published an interactive intellectual property toolkit for universities. The guide helps university students and academics understand IP. It also helps universities and businesses to work together.
IP is vital to economic growth. Students and their lecturers need to develop an understanding of IP and its relevance to them. This will ensure they leave university ready for their future careers. But universities also need to develop IP policies. These will help them to make the most of the intellectual assets created by their staff and students and in collaborative relationships with business. The UK IPO toolkit will allow universities to create more IP savvy graduates and get the most from their ideas and creativity.
