Model Intellectual Property Policy for Universities and Research Institutions

At the request of some Cooperating Countries TDC has created a model intellectual property policy for universities and other research institution as a tool devised to help such institutions in creating their own policies aimed at encouraging the practical application and the economic use of the results of research carried out at the institutions.

This tool facilitates the efforts of Universities to elaborate their own Intellectual Property (IP) policies on the rights related to the protection and exploitation, the obtainment and transfer of intellectual products and the manner of determination of the author's share in the fees and other revenues arising from the exploitation of the product, as well as enhancing the moral acknowledgement of authors.

The tool might serve both as a template and as a set of guidelines on which the universities can base their own IP policies.
