STCU Workshop: Intellectual Property Rights and Science: building a business on your Ideas


September 27-28, 2005
Baku, Azerbaijan


This Workshop was planned in a series of the STCU training events assisting scientists in their sustainability efforts. More than 50 Azeri and Georgian scientists were selected to participate in order to obtain an improved understanding of Intellectual Property Rights, licensing and other related issues. It will help them in commercializing their technologies, exploiting intellectual property and finding partners.


Our speakers will be: Mark R. Powell, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; Judson R. Hightower, Associate General Counsel, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Vic Korsun, Consultant Coordinator, Science Centers Partners Program, US Department of State. Their presentations will contain tutorial materials and discuss practical questions as well. The STCU IPR guidelines and procedures will also be presented to Azeri and Georgian scientists.
