(iii) the Intellectual Property belongs to a set of Intellectual Property generated by a team of which the student is a member ; or

(iv) the Intellectual Property has been generated as a result of funding provided by or obtained by the University;

technology commercialisation

  • Assess Intellectual Property (IP) space and protect where necessary
  • Commercialise the technology
    • Licenses, spin-off companies, sales etc

patents a word of wisdom
Patents - A word of wisdom
  • To be granted a patent the invention needs to be “novel”
    • So do not tell anyone!
  • In some countries the priority date is based on “First to invent” rather than “First to submit”
    • So laboratory notebooks are VERY IMPORTANT
lab books
Lab Books
  • VERY important
  • Deals with the “First to Invent” versus “First to Lodge” issue
  • Lab books should be;
    • Bound, have numbered pages, be signed and witnessed, written in ink, legible
  • Lab books are the property of the University
