The Tech Transfer Office and the Doctoral School of Sciences & Technology are organizing an information session on 'Intellecual Property'. Intellectual Property ('IP') is a legal term that refers to various creations of the mind : inventions, literature, artistic works, et cetera. When research evolves into a new idea with high market potential, Hasselt university looks into ways to protect the research result and assists with the commercialization thereof.

During your academic career, many questions will indeed come to mind regarding your research: who owns the IP rights on your research results (you or the university) ? What can be done to protect your results ? In which circumstances should you (not) publish your research results ? ...

In this session, a basic introduction in IP is first given by Mrs. Heidi Cardous of the Tech Transfer Office.

After this basic introduction, Vincent Ryckaert, IP manager at imec, takes a closer look at the specific IP rights in the filed of software and materials research. In an interactive session he will guide you through the do’s and don’ts for academic researchers in these particular fields.
