IP Policies for Universities and Research Institutions
Universities and research institutions seeking to partner with industry or other organizations need a policy for effective intellectual property (IP) management and technology transfer.
Such policies provide structure, predictability, and a beneficial environment, in which commercialization partners (industrial sponsors, consultants, non-profit organizations, SMEs, governments) and research stakeholders (researchers, technicians, students, visiting researchers, etc.) can access and share knowledge, technology and IP.
Each university or research institution has the autonomy to develop its own approach, taking into account the interests of all stakeholders.
