Photos from Lord Rayleigh's Laboratory

On 11 April 2018, a small group of CSES members were privileged to receive a guided tour of Lord Rayleigh's laboratory at Terling Place, which remains today largely as it was left in the 1940s.

Our thanks to Professor Edward Davies, University of Cambridge, for offering us this wonderful and rare opportunity.

For those who missed it, we will try to organise another tour in the future, with priority spaces offered to those on the waiting list from April.

Intellectual assets are our most valuable assets by far but are also the least managed: less than one percent are ever licensed or used commercially. There are many reasons for this poor economic performance, and this course identifies these challenges and solutions for addressing them.

This innovation webinar series, presented by Ideation in collaboration with IEEE UK & Ireland Section, comprises 25 free seminars. It runs fortnightly from Feb 2018 to Jan 2019 and covers best practices in managing intellectual assets. It includes sessions with topics for innovators, practitioners, and advanced IP managers.
