Universities and public research institutions (PRIs) are the factories of the knowledge economy. Intellectual property (IP) adds another mechanism for universities to disseminate the knowledge that they generate and to have that knowledge used in the economic sector.
What we do
We provide advice, support and resources to help universities and PRIs around the world tap into their IP and continue fuelling the innovation that drives society forward.
For great ideas to flourish, they need to make their way from universities and research centers into the hands of the consumer. Understanding IP issues around knowledge transfer can help get discoveries from the lab to the marketplace.
