Knowledge exchange, commercialisation and collaboration present different pathways to realise impact, and they also present different challenges. The IPO is committed to supporting institutions to make informed decisions about using their IP and to helping researchers to be confident about how IP relates to their research. This workshop explains how to navigate the IP environment and highlight the potential opportunities to maximise the impact of research.
