IP & impact training
These one day courses explore the interface between academia and industry, the public, government or the arts. A mix of guest speakers from outside the academy and interactive workshops allow participants to consider the routes by which their research may reach external audiences (their pathways to impact) as well as learning about their intellectual property rights and obligations.
All options include:
Protecting your IP
An overview of the law relating to intellectual property and the procedures researchers should follow in order to protect IP.
Pathways to impact
An interactive ‘game’ which helps researchers to maximise the non-academic impact of their research by exploring the variety of ways in which impact can be achieved.
Currently available at Royal Holloway, University of London. Please contact us regarding availability of this course elsewhere.

In this course, expert practitioners discuss the creative partnerships they have built. Participants will be invited to share their experiences and what has worked – or hasn’t – for them. The process of setting up a performance-based organisation will be discussed and participants explore the factors which lead to success when setting up a new arts-based enterprise, whether a sole pursuit or a formal collaboration.

This course will guide participants through the private sector innovation ecosystem, how it relates to their research and the University activities that facilitate interactions with industry. A speaker working in industry will give their perspective on innovation and discuss their career after their PhD, and an interactive workshop will help students to identify who in a company they should talk to about their research.
Partipants work in teams to analyse a case study and decide which organization they should approach with their discovery. Should you talk to the component manufacturer or the multinational retailer? Based on a real life example, the answer is not what most people expect…
A personal laptop (Windows or Mac OSX) is required to gain the maximum from this workshop.

The course examines how researchers can describe their work to the public and how they can influence government policy. A guest speaker will describe how they work to connect research to policy-makers and discuss how academics can optimise how they present their results.
Does your work have a unique sound? How can it be translated into a podcast or radio presentation? This fast-paced workshop sees participants producing a short podcast describing their work. This session will introduce Audacity, the leading open source audio editor, and participants will plan, script, record and edit a full podcast – in just 90 minutes.
