HealthTech Hub Masterclass: How can I protect my Intellectual Property and why is it important?
Introducing our upcoming Health Tech Hub Masterclass, thoughtfully crafted for researchers, innovators, clinicians, and enterprising start-up founders to help understand what exactly is involved in a commercialisation journey.
When you embark on the path of commercialising your research or innovation, one of the first steps is gaining an understanding of the Intellectual Property (IP) landscape. Our forthcoming masterclass is expertly designed to delve not only into the IP that you've generated but also to guide you in crafting strategies for its protection and, perhaps most importantly, its effective utilization.
