Research from large, publicly funded projects often aims to address gaps in our understanding of, or capacity to address, key societal, industrial or governance challenges. To this extent, Horizon Europe and other funding platforms have increasingly placed a great deal of emphasis on commercialising or otherwise exploiting research outputs. However, the skills and considerations necessary for successful commercialisation are seldom taught to scientists, who are also expected to contribute to open-access publications, datasets and other deliverables. This workshop is specifically designed to help researchers in Horizon Europe projects understand the benefits of commercialisation, the IP considerations surrounding both commercial and non-commercial exploitation plans, managing IP during and after projects and practical advice for valuing and approaching the market.

This workshop will feature:

  • An overview of commercialisation from speakers Lindsay Smith and Phil Bishop
  • Guest talks from Barker Brettell Patent Attorneys, Nick Braddon and Jon Myers
  • A fireside chat with company representatives and researchers with commercialisation experience
  • An opportunity to speak 1:1 about your own IP and projects in an IP clinic with IP and commercialisation experts

The half-day workshop will take place in the afternoon of November 2nd, 2023: attendees are able to join live in person or virtually via Zoom, please specify how you will join on the registration form.

The in person workshop is limited to 100 participants. Registration is free, and the workshop will cover refreshments. Participants are expected to cover their own expenses for travel, accommodation and breakfast.
