Intellectual Property: Know the Basics as it Applies to Research Administration

(90 minutes) Researchers and institutions all want to own the “next big idea”. However, intellectual property (IP) may seem a bit mystical for many in research administration. This webinar will provide a basis of knowledge regarding IP and the research administrator’s role in perpetuating responsible practices to identify and protect researcher and institutional rights.

We recommend testing your browser as soon as possible in case you need to contact your IT department for help.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
