Are you researching, developing, creating, discovering, investigating…? Even just having ideas?

Whether or not you have a current interest in commercialisation, recognising the value and power of Intellectual Property, and knowing how to protect it, is important to you and your university.

Join Marks & Clerk – Intellectual Property Services, in an expert-led awareness session on Intellectual Property (IP), at 2.30pm – 3.30pm on 18 February 2021.
