Student IP – Creating an IP savvy workforce Paintworks, Bristol

This Intellectual Property Office (IPO) event will be held on 5th March 2015 at Paintworks, Bristol.

The event will be a celebration of entrepreneurial spirit and provides an opportunity to hear from industry and academic leaders about why IP knowledge is the cornerstone to graduate employability.

We’re very pleased that Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Minister of Intellectual Property, will be joining us to launch “IP Tutor”, a new interactive learning tool designed to improve IP knowledge amongst university students.

The event will also see the winners of the “StudentshIP Enterprise Awards 2014” being announced and receiving their awards.  This new IPO competition will reward the most enterprising projects that bring together enterprising students, businesses, and their local communities to incorporate IP within these exciting projects.
