Increase your knowledge, skills and resources for IP

Classroom Lectures

The Catalyst Centre works with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) to bring their teaching and learning resources to your classroom. Classroom lectures are intended to provide you with baseline knowledge of IP supplemented with CIPO’s Bank of Speakers and IP Case Studies initiative.  Lectures can be arranged through the Catalyst Centre and are conducted by a trained IP professional upon availability. 

The Bank of Speakers Initiative consists of a 60-minute presentation covering intellectual property (IP) basics, (patents, copyright, and trademarks) followed by a case study and discussion (90 minutes). This presentation is suitable for research groups, students, faculty and staff interested in learning more about IP.
