Project:

Student projects will be observed by their invention, their ethical approach, understanding of the IP process, and creativity. It has to be an acceptable invention that has the potential and ability to express both Responsible Code of Research and Intellectual Property. In addition, the students will keep a log of all ethical situations that arise. Also, they will log possible solutions to handle those situations. Their IP process should follow the format instructed in the materials used to navigate this module. As a result, the students will combine the knowledge learned from the previous weeks and incorporate them into your own intuitive idea for an invention. The premise is to highlight, the role of ethics, and RCR in the field of IP. For instance, what kind of patent are you seeking? Was there a conflict of interest with-in the group members? And was there a violation in the conduct of research (this may be simulated for the purposes of discussion)
