Protecting IP

  • The key is to consider geographies ie, UK, Europe, USA
  • Understanding what can be protected as well as the nuances of the different geographies, is important when applying
  • University/NHS – as employees of these organisations, any potential IP devised whilst employed will, by default, belong to the relevant organisation. Options will be taken by that organisation and should it not be deemed in the organisation’s interest, then IP can be transferred to the ownership of the academic/innovator.
