Join us for a fun and relaxed session to play 'Black Swan,' a game which will help you to get your head around the basic principles of Intellectual Property. 


Black Swan is a game which has been developed by students, researchers and enterprise educators at Lancaster University on behalf of the UK Intellectual Property Office. The game is in continuous development so play testers are always much appreciated!

The game will help you to learn more about:

  • How IP is created and the different forms it takes
  • The legal complexities of how it is protected, exploited and infringed
  • The social, technological and cultural factors that affect its value and people's behavior around it.

It is also an ideal game to help you develop your strategic thinking and negotiation skills. 

The session will be held in Learning Zone Pod 4

The Enterprise Team are looking to host regular 'Play It' Labs to help students develop their knowledge and skills related to enterprise through fun, relaxed game sessions - look out for future sessions!
