Is this course right for me?

The course is suitable for knowledge exchange and commercialisation professionals working in higher education or other public-sector research or NHS innovation environments. Delegates will have experience in technology transfer, but little practical experience of software commercialisation. The course is not intended for those with a degree in computer science or similar.  It will be of most benefit to those who have already worked in technology transfer for at least three months.

Why should I attend this course?

The course will improve delegates' confidence and provide a framework of materials and contacts to refer to when software disclosures arise. Delegates also have the chance to hear from and question university software entrepreneurs at first hand.

What will I learn from the course?

  • A detailed understanding of the special eligibility rules for software patents

  • Appreciation of how software is built from components allowing reuse and sharing, and the specifics of licensing of software components

  • When software may constitute a medical device or diagnostic tool

  • An understanding of the concepts and jargon of software development in order to interact effectively with inventors

  • What questions to ask a software inventor at disclosure, and the implications of the answers for the prospects of the software

The course also focuses on networking, providing a valuable platform to meet peers, discuss best practice, and interact with the course team and other contributors.

PLEASE NOTE: There may be a requirement for delegates to undertake some pre-course work/reading before the course begins.
