The University of Canberra is currently reviewing its policies relating to intellectual property (IP). The Faculty of Health is hosting a free mini conference on IP as it affects academia.

The Faculty of Health is committed to the open sharing of ideas, information and practice. As part of its commitment to a caring and inclusive society, the Faculty is hosting a workshop to discuss the role of IP in 21st century institutions. It will hear from innovators in open sharing and identify the fundamental characteristics of transparent intellectual property policies.

This page indexes the 10 minute presentations given at the mini conference, subsequent public documents and submissions being worked on, and public discussion around the issues.

As a number of people have already expressed interest in attending online, talks will be ustreamed with backchannels set up under the hashtag #ucip. Links to the recordings and discussions will be listed here.
