Intellectual Property and Procurement Fundamentals for Government
On behalf of the Intellectual Property Centre of Expertise (ISED), CIPMM is pleased to share the upcoming webinar on IP and Procurement Fundamentals for Government.
As federal public servants, intellectual property (IP) is encountered in many aspects of our work. The way that IP is addressed and considered by federal employees can significantly impact, either positively or negatively, the achievement of departmental/program objectives and benefits to the Canadian public. Procurement is one area of federal activity where it is important to recognize what constitutes IP and understand potential IP implications.
In this webinar, the IP Centre of Expertise will explore topics such as
- What is IP and how is it created and managed in government
- Importance of IP in the private and public sector
- Key IP concepts in procurement
- Ownership and licensing considerations in procurement contracts
It is our hope that participants will leave with a better understanding of the IP considerations that will impact their procurement activities.
