IP FOR ENGINEERS - FORTHCOMING CONFERENCE


Professor Ruth Soetendorp of the University of Bournemouth’s CIPPM has informed the IPKat of a forthcoming event. The WSEAS International Conference on Engineering Education will be taking place in Greece on 8 to 10 July. Amongst the sessions on offer are one led Professor Soetendorp on “Intellectual property education for entrepreneurial engineers – developing pedagogic strategies for including KEY but not CORE elements in the engineering syllabus”.

The session is on how to get universities to open up the engineering syllabus to intellectual property and other non-core topics. It is part of the work being undertaken by a small interdisciplinary research project group consisting of Professor Soetendorp and Bill Childs (an IP lawyer from University of Technology Sydney) with Prof Jim Roach and Dr Rob McLaughlan (of the School of Design Engineering & Computing, Bournemouth and the Faculty of Engineering, University of Technology Sydney).
