As a researcher, you (rightly) focus first and foremost on the academic and societal value of your research results. But did you know that many research results are protected by intellectual property rights (“IP”)? And are you aware of the consequences of such intellectual property rights, such as the legal monopoly that they create? During this IP seminar, a basic introduction in intellectual property rights is given, with a particular focus on copyright.
The session is intended to create awareness about IP, and IP at UHasselt and provide researchers of ArcK and MAD with concrete advice on how to deal with it in their research projects. Also, different types of dissemination and exploitation in art and design research are covered, duly taking into account the interests of all parties involved. E.g. in which circumstances is it advisable to disseminate your research results on an open access platform? What exactly is the value of “creative commons”?
The session involves a brief theoretical introduction, followed by an interactive workshop, based on relevant cases from research at ARK and the particular questions you have.
Speaker Tobias Van Royen studied law at the University of Antwerp, did an LLM in Tax law and holds a degree in Culture Management. He started his career in the creative sector as a consultant at Cultuurloket. Nowadays he is co-founder of the legal consultancy firm Twee-eiige Drieling (TWIIID), where he provides artists, creative enterprises and arts organizations with legal advice. TWIIID is also frequently asked to conduct fundamental research and to partake in residencies (Kunsthal Gent, F.eks Aalborg, et cetera), where they reflect on the artistic practice and experiment with providing an artistic framework around the legal practice. Results and films of this research can be found on twiiid.be.
He also works at the University of Antwerp where he lectures the legal framework of the culture sector.
For UHasselt PhD students attending the seminar and the lecture, participation counts towards the Doctoral School requirement of Advanced discipline-specific knowledge or IP, valorisation & science communication.
