    Open access publishing seems to be getting more and more expensive. The Library can help minimise these charges so that you can publish your work and remain compliant with funder mandates. Come to this session to learn about open access in the UWA Profiles and Research Repository, and the UWA APC fund.

    This session is designed to give UWA researchers a better understanding of the media – how the media works and how to get the media to work for you. You’ll get information on how to attract journalists to your research and how to handle media attention once you have got it. There will be tips and techniques for media interviews, including how to answer difficult questions.

    Find out what you can expect from media coverage and gain insight into mainstream media organisations. Part of the session focuses on how to engage with the UWA Media Office to get the most out of your media experience.

    Everything you need to know about Intellectual Property and Commercialisation at UWA (in 45 mins or less!)

    The seminar will give an overview of:

  1. Intellectual Property – what it is and why it’s important
  2. Patenting – what you need to get a patent
  3. Developing your idea – including sources of funding
  4. Commercialisation – how to put your ideas to use
  5. Researchers interested to learn about the patenting process in more depth may also consider attending the seminar “Have you actually invented something?” immediately following this seminar.

    As a university researcher you have almost certainly created new knowledge … but have you also invented something that’s patentable? Probably the most misunderstood aspect in patenting is the statutory requirement for there to be an ‘inventive step,’ alternatively referred to as ‘non-obviousness’, in the work for which a patent application has been filed.

    This seminar will be presented by an experienced Patent Examiner from IP Australia and will explain what the inventive step is as well as various inventive step tests using real examples of patent applications. The intention is to provide a clearer understanding of the inventive step and thus help you understand if your research outcomes are patentable.

    There will be ample time for Q&A to dig deeper.

    This event immediately follows the “Creating Impact through Intellectual Property and Commercialisation” seminar.

    The emphasis on research impact continues to grow in Australia. In 2018, the ARC undertook Australia’s first Engagement and Impact Assessment, which will rate the how the research arising from Australian Universities has contributed to our society and economy. Results will be released in December.

    How do you document and articulate the impact or engagement activities that are part of your research? Through impact planning you can create a pathway that focuses your engagement activities and enables the creation, monitoring and evaluation of impacts related to your research.

    During this workshop you will:

    • become more familiar with the ARC’s Engagement and Impact Assessment: what is impact? what is engagement?
    • be introduced to a range of impact planning tools
    • begin to think about planning for impact in the context of your own research
