  • Introduction

    Intellectual property reaches into everyone's daily lives. A basic awareness and understanding of IP is therefore essential for today’s university students, who are the engineers, researchers, lawyers, politicians and managers of tomorrow.

    IP Advanced Part I follows on from the introductory IP Basics. It contains the tools and information you need to deliver more in-depth lectures on the main aspects of patents, utility models and designs.

    In addition to the main presentations, IP Advanced Part I contains case studies and exercises on patents and designs that demonstrate their use in the real world.

    With the IP Teaching Kit you have at your disposal an extensive set of freely accessible, professional teaching materials which represents one of the most comprehensive IP teaching resources in the world.
