Handling Your IP

The university is committed to creating a research environment that facilitates the development, protection, mobilization and commercialization of intellectual property in a manner that is fair, respectful of academic freedom and embedded in university culture.

Sharing knowledge created is at the heart of our mission, as we strive to solve real-world problems by creating IP that can bring benefit to the broader society.

To establish this, it is critical to understand how, when and what to share with internal and external community.  What are good practices to follow when dealing with your IP?  How can you protect yourself and your interests, but maintain an open channel?

It is important to understand the rights around the IP you create, and how to mobilize in a way that aligns with your interests, the university and external stakeholders.
