Part I: General Questions

5. What is your overall impression of the course? Please motivate your answer!

- It is good to learn about intellectual properties especially when you are working in the research area. It was a good course with lots of experience from the industry and academical world.»
- The IP and patent parts were the most intresting, most related to my work»
- It did not feel very organized, however it was interesting to hear all the lecturers experiences.»
- Overall the content of the course was good. Most interesting thing for me was about patents.»

- Interesting»
- Interesting lecures but the rest was not very well organized. The examination especially could be improved»
- Interesting lecture series, but not enough workload.»
- It was a lot of new information in the beginning so it was hard to understand in the beginning. However, I think the lecturers did a good job»
- The overall impression is good. I was expecting a boring series of lectures in bland ethics discussions that we"ve all heard before. This course was not like that at all. Instead I got a fresh and balanced view on the topics.»
- Good. Lots of examples given to illustrate the course. Lots of discussion.»

6. Was the course relevant in relation to your own research process? Why/why not?

- Yes indeed. I can relate in questions regarding the cooperation between different researchers. How important it is to write contracts etc.»
- the etichal part is not that relavant since i work with material research, polymeric fibres.»
- Yes, there could be a potential for imfringement as well as new patent opportunities.»
- Yes, as I am working on projects which are related to the companies of my supervisor. So this course encourage me to do my research on Ethics point of view and this was the question which has been raised during the lecture. »
- Yes. I am currently working on IP issues related to my research.»
- No, guess you"ll disagree.»
- Yes, it opened my eyes and convinced me of andto the importance of IP issues in research in both academy and industry.»
- Not really because I"m working with theoretical physics. However still acquired useful information.»
- Good to get some basics regarding the area. Might be useful later.»
- No for my PhD work. But I learned a lot and I think it could be relevant in the future»
- Yes. As a developer/researcher many of the topics are of course relevant.»
- Relevant yes and no as my PhD topic is theoretic.»

7. Has the course had any impact on how you think about and manage the research results from your research process?

- It has. I have learned about the importance how to store the data etc.»
- not yet.»
- Yes»
- Yes, as I am using a technology which is a patent of my supervisor. So right now I am thinking on how to secure my intellectual property within this patent.»
- Yes. I will think more strategic in the future.»
- No»
- So far not in any specific situation but I believe I will benefit from the course in the future.»
- Yes a little.»
- Not in my research area»
- Yes.»
- yes as the course presents all possible ways to communicate our results. Sometimes I think we tend to forget then publishing is not the only way.»

8. What would you recommend us to do differently next year, do you have suggestions for improvements?

- It is fun to get some feedback on what you have written in the assignments. I would like to have it back and commented. »
- nothing»
- More structural approach and don"t save all the assignments to the end»
- No comments»
- A course book would be good. (The notes distributed are almost a course book.)»
- Some lecturers had clearly political opinions and goals, this is fine. However, these opinions where emphasised a little to much. First state the facts, then speak your opinions. »
- Give suggestions of literature in connection with the home assignments, the only sources we were our own recollections of lecures. Follow up home assignments with seminars in smaller groups. The lecture that was cancelled could have been announced more clearly.»
- Start with written assignments earlier and give some feedback.»
- I think you need some more information for the assignment. The session we had after it would be better to have before it instead»
- Stay on schedule. The course accidentally got a one-week shift and that made planning a hassle.»
- Study different cases in groups and then discuss the cases in front of the class with a help of a powerpoint presentation, could be a good exercise. »
