Intellectual Property when applying to NIHR 

24 October 2017

This webinar will provide an introduction to IP and help researchers understand how they should discuss IP in a funding application.

Intellectual property' (IP) doesn't just refer to patents and inventions. The NIHR uses a much broader definition of IP and believes that the vast majority of research that it funds will produce some form of IP. Effective IP management at all stages of research is an important part of delivering long term patient benefit from NIHR funding. This means that researchers applying to NIHR need to be aware of what types of IP they may be producing and also present a compelling strategy for capturing and managing that IP.
