Online masterclass led by Jeff Skinner, Executive Director of the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at London Business School, UK

Such IP comes in many flavours from the undergraduate who comes up with a new venture idea in their dorm room (over which only the most avaricious of universities have any claim) through to the PhD student who coinvents with their supervisor (much trickier).

It’s really easy to come up with a policy – however most of them fail to accommodate all the contingencies and probably would be enforced (let alone upheld in court) so are useless. Some are ambiguous which means that they’re not policies at all, just a way of kicking the can down the road. Moreover, there have been cases where students have ‘gone public’ on particularly egregious policies.

In this Masterclass we:

  • Set out the main components of a student IP policy – the main issues it needs to accommodate.
  • Discuss what is reasonable and enforceable.
  • Show how to implement a policy – both technically and ‘politically’.
  • Specific problem scenarios – disentangling the problem and pinpointing the variables
  • Some existing student IP policies and processes - to assess their effectiveness
  • Solutions - to figure out what is fair and workable – based on a AUTM student IP ‘manual’ from a few years ago, co-authored by the Masterclass director.

The Masterclass will comprise discussions and presentations around:

  • Specific problem scenarios – disentangling the problem and pinpointing the variables
  • Some existing student IP policies and processes - to assess their effectiveness
  • Solutions - to figure out what is fair and workable – based on a AUTM student IP ‘manual’ from a few years ago, co-authored by the Masterclass director.
