The Essentials of Innovation (Cohort 2), 27th April 2016

This event has now taken place, and resources have been added to our website:


This event was primarily aimed towards developing a new cohort of Scouts in NHS CCGs / primary care. We also welcomed interest from those working in a relevant higher education setting in the region. Your organisation must either be a member of the AHSN NENC to sign up, or providing primary healthcare services in general practice. If you would like to find out more or need to speak to someone please contact Rachel on

This event provided an opportunity to learn more about:

  • What intellectual property is and why it is important
  • How intellectual property is related to the innovation process
  • Types of intellectual property and how they can be applied
  • De-mystifying the legal stuff – IP policies and how you can use them to encourage colleagues to come forward with ideas
  • Confidentiality and disclosure of ideas – what you need to know
  • How Innovation Scouts can promote innovation and uncover IP in your organisation
