Intellectual Property, Ethics & the Utilization of Academic Research in health/life sciences

10-14 March 2014 - University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg (Sweden)

The academy organized by the University of Gothenburg (UGOT) aims at conveying to participants the importance of intellectual property rights from both an ethical and a practical standpoint, especially as they apply to health sciences. Particular attention is given to analysing the norms and laws that govern the utilization of academic research in entrepreneurial ventures.

The aim of the academy is to provide the researcher with a fundamental understanding of the challenges and opportunities related to the integration of research and utilization processes.

Context and training description
Successful utilization of research is based on collaboration between various actors where value is created both for society and the research community. Research results can be utilized in many ways such as through publication, open access, collaboration, licensing and venture creation among others. Furthermore, the results of research can take on many forms, including data, instructions, and inventions that is potentially relevant for utilization across both basic and applied research. Decisions regarding utilization also have an ethical dimension - for the society at large, but also for the university, the research group and the individual researcher.

This course will take participants through the process of mapping research and research projects, from identification intellectual assets to the capture and assessment of research as intellectual assets. Central to this process is the understanding of different sources of knowledge that support and strengthen research projects, the creation of societal value through economic and non-economic means, and the ethical considerations that need to be taken into account.

This training is dedicated to researchers willing to experience the challenges related to the integration of research and utilization processes through an intense accelerated academy.
