DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire and Alpha Loft will co-host a breakfast roundtable on “Universities as Economic Change Agents” Friday, April 17 at the UNH Manchester campus, Pandora Building, room P201, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
As a UNH graduate student, I have been interning with UNHInnovation (UNHI) to learn more about copyright law and the future of intellectual property. My research has culminated in a graduate studies project, a Creative Works Symposium. The goal of this project is to better inform faculty and students about the impact of intellectual property rights on universities and to answer questions faculty or students may have in regards to intellectual property, including copyright and trademark laws.
One of the elements of my job that I really enjoy is presenting to UNH faculty, staff, and students about technology transfer. What is it? Why do we do it? How do we do it? Over the years, a common reaction to these questions has been: “Why do I need to care about commercialization?”
