Can I protect my research?

 ‌Research outputs may be eligible for intellectual property protection — whether you’ve developed a new drug or discovered some novel biomarkers, created an innovative software application or a ground-breaking semiconductor material, or something else entirely.

Indeed, Intellectual property can be used to protect research outputs that relate to projects that are not technology-based research. Innovative websites and new teaching media are practical examples of this.

RSIO protects each of the main types of intellectual property, described in detail on Intellectual Property Basics.
