Intellectual property and non-disclosure

Before beginning any research with your company, our research office will sign an agreement with you regarding ownership of IP. The general principles of the agreement are as follows:

  • Ownership of IP produced during a research and development project in association with an Industry Partner will be owned by the Industry Partner.
  • In most cases college students and faculty must be involved in the research and development activity. This is a condition of many funding agencies.
  • The Industry Partner must be actively involved in the research and development activity.
  • In addition to ownership of IP, all staff and students engaged in research with your company sign Non-Disclosure Agreements stating that they will not disclose to any third party any confidential information obtained through the research at any time.
