Past MidTECH Events

You are invited to attend a virtual Intellectual Property workshop run by MidTECH the NHS Innovation Hub for the West Midlands.

Online Intellectual Property Workshop – Thursday 29th February 2024 10:00am – 11:30am.

The workshop is free to staff from NHS organisations within the Midlands region, and attendance from staff in all roles or grades are encouraged.

The NHS recognises that its staff can generate new ideas and concepts, innovative solutions to problems, inventions, or just better ways of working, that may, with the right support, lead to improvements in the running of our hospitals or the delivery of healthcare. Such ideas and concepts are termed Intellectual Property (IP) and, like other kinds of property, can be owned and protected.

Your Trust intends to encourage all its employees to make these sorts of contributions by giving you the advice and support needed to maximise the potential benefits from your good ideas and therefore staff are encouraged to attend the MidTECH IP Workshop for targeted advice and support.

This interactive workshop will explore:

  • What is Intellectual Property (IP)?
  • Why is IP important?
  • What are IP Rights?
  • How your research or new ideas can be developed, protected, and commercialised with support available from MidTECH.

The workshop will be held online via Teams. To register for this event or for further information please contact Amardeep Kaur:

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Please note places on the Workshop are limited so early registration is advised.
