This unit will give students an in depth and comprehensive appreciation of the practicalities of nurturing, protecting and commercialising intellectual property derived from academic research. The unit will be comprised of an intensive two day workshop conducted at an offsite location (usually in Queensland), together with staff and students from UQ, JCU, UTS, UoW and other institutions whose IP is managed by UniQuest. The workshop will provide a firm grounding in the "whys" and "hows" of research commercialisation, prepare students to apply their new-found knowledge, and give them the opportunity to pitch their innovative ideas to an audience of 2-300 of their peers, including experienced commercialisation professionals. The follow-up work at UTAS will focus on producing a business plan in preparation for the unit's principal assessment task.
