Training workshop

Workshop On Intellectual Property

The generation of Intellectual Properties (IPs) which include patents, trademarks, designs, and copyrights stand at the forefront of the activities that place a University on world-class relevance. All concerned stakeholders, especially, the researchers and inventors stand to gain immensely from IP generation and commercialization. Such benefits range from financial proceeds from their IPs to Industrial linkages and royalties.

The Vice Chancellor hereby hosts the Intellectual Property and Research Commercialization workshop to afford all participants the opportunity to grasp fully the concept of IP generation in the University setting, the processes involved in research output commercialization, as well as hands-on training on the patenting process.

Geology Fieldwork Conference 2018

About The Conference

A Code for Geoscientific Fieldwork in Africa: Guidelines on Health and Safety Issues in Mapping, Mineral Exploration and Geoecological Research

Reinforcing  health and safety management issues in geoscientific fieldwork in Africa is urgent. This is exemplified from the recurrent reports of missing participants, unsavory accounts of encounters with village heads, municipal authorities or section chiefs, motor vehicle accidents, hunting accidents, kidnappings, armed robberies, attacks by herdsmen, „vigilante groups‟ or wild animals, unethical field procedures, common law duty of care, litigation, insurance considerations, and so on. It is surely not good publicity for any university if a student undertaking fieldwork is attacked, killed by wild animals, hijacked, injured by landmine, catches malaria, or, worst, shot by a hunter and dies in the field. The Conference will bring to light the virtual absence of regulatory guidelines in conducting geological fieldwork by many geoscience departments in Africa and some mineral exploration and mining establishments, and would highlight the importance of mitigating health and safety challenges identified from the ethical, legal, economic and other dimensions.

 Full introduction to UNLEASH

In May 2018, UNLEASH takes place in Singapore. 1,000 of the most talented young people are being handpicked to come up with solutions to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They will meet in Singapore to come up with disruptive and innovative solutions within themes related to the SDGs.

The first UNLEASH took place in Denmark in August 2017. In November 2017, the Danish Prime Minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen handed over UNLEASH to the Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during an official visit. “Denmark kick-started this great initiative, and there is no better partner than Singapore to take over. The global SDGs carry the ambition to bring the world we live in closer to the world in which we wish to live. Singapore is known for its foresight, drive, and ability to take action. By passing on the host country torch to Singapore, I am sure that UNLEASH will take yet another important step forward,” said Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

UNLEASH starts on May 30 and the talents will learn from Singaporean private and public sector, who will inspire the talents for their process through the four-day innovation challenge. The talents are put in teams and will work on solutions within their field of expertise. “We each have a valuable contribution to make to sustainable development. This gathering of young, creative and innovative minds will harness the power of human ingenuity, to create imaginative solutions that achieve the SDGs,” said Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

At the end of the innovation challenge, the solutions will be perfected and pitched in front of a panel of experts before UNLEASH culminates on June 6, when the final awards show takes place and thought leaders from all over the world will give keynotes to inspire the talents’ way forward. Here the best ideas are also awarded and given prizes to further support the implementation of their solutions.

Applications will be open from January 15 – February 15, 2018. For more information, please visit www.unleash.org.
