Introducing intellectual property

Do you know how to protect your invention? Do you know when it's safe to disclose your idea? FuelRCA's Intellectual Property seminar gave a full house of RCA students the ins and outs of patents, design rights, trade marks and copyright.

Download the Introducing Intellectual Property Fuel Note for useful information and links on intellectual property rights.

The seminar was given by Dr Nadia Danhash, Director of InnovationRCA, and Pauline Watkins, and the evening also launched the James Dyson IP & Proof of Concept Fund. Set up with the generous support of Sir James Dyson, Provost of the Royal College of Art, the fund will help RCA students and recent graduates turn their innovative designs and inventions into successful commercial projects. Support will include patenting/protection and early stage development so that designs can be sold directly or made more attractive to investors.
