This session delivered by Dr Jim Houlihan and Charley Vaughton will provide an insight into what intellectual property (IP) is and how it is relevant to your research. In particular, it will help you understand how identifying and managing IP can help you get the impact you want from your research. It will also try and dispel some common myths and pitfalls you can avoid.

The UWE Bristol IP policy will be explained. All UWE Bristol doctoral researchers are required to submit a digital copy of their thesis to the institutional research repository. Many of these will include third party copyrighted material to support the research. This workshop will help researchers become familiar with using copyright material legally in their thesis, from seeking permission and attributing material to finding and using copyright free and creative commons licensed resources.

Learning outcomes:

  • A knowledge of intellectual property
  • How IP is relevant to research and writing your thesis
  • What the UWE Bristol IP policy means

Aimed at UWE Bristol Postgraduate Researchers, Early Career Researchers and research staff.
