It is good academic practice to build on the work of others. However, such work can be protected by intellectual property rights like copyrights, patents and trademarks.

This workshop will enable you to navigate the field of intellectual property law in a research context. On the one hand, you will get to know how your research can be affected by intellectual property rights and what options you have in order to make use of the work of others. On the other hand, you will learn how you can control the use of your own research and make it legally available.
