4 In the past, a general observation has been that many universities and R&D institutions have been "amateur" in their relations with sponsors of R&D activities. One of the reasons for this is that most universities and R&D institutions do not have intellectual property policies in place with which to safeguard their interests in managing collaborative research activities. Particularly sensitive are issues related to ownership, disclosure and the distribution of income in the event of an invention being commercialized. WIPO Guidelines on Developing IP Policy for Universities and R&D Organisations

5 Need for an IP Policy Government funding is typically inadequate; Retain staff; Transfer of knowledge is low; Link between industry and academia is typically low in a developing country; Need to ensure we have IP policies that safeguard our interests in managing collaborative research activities including commercialisation of research results; and Need to deal with potential conflicts of interest.

6 Outline 1. Need for an IP Policy; 2. Objectives of an IP Policy; 3. Key issues to be addressed How do I develop a Policy?; Who is subject to the Policy?; Who owns the IP? When and how must I disclose my IP?; What are the possible routes for commercialisation; How will the income be distributed?; and Who has decision making power? 4. Other issues 6

7 Objectives of an IP Policy CORE: Provide for IP generated; Promote the progress of science and technology; Ensure that discoveries are utilised for the benefit of the public ADDITIONAL: Encourage, incentivise and expedite the dissemination of discoveries, creations and new knowledge; Protect traditional rights (academia vs innovation); Fair and equitable distribution of research results; Establish standards for the rights and obligations of university, creators, sponsors; and Ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

11 How do I develop the Policy?

15 Who owns the IP? Typically, IP created in the course and scope of employment belong to the institution; Course and scope all acts that are performed by an employee in the pursuit of the University's business and affairs and (1) are authorized to be performed by that employee, (2) occur substantially within the authorized time and space limit, (3) are activated at least in part by a purpose to serve the State. * * Arizona State University

18 Sponsored research Ownership of IP created in the course of research funded by a sponsor with a grant or research agreement will be governed by the terms of the grant or agreement, as approved by the institution; Institution can still claim ownership of IP; and Ownership if government funding used depends on the law governing IP.

19 Students In most cases students own IP they create unless: receive financial support from the institution in the form of wages, salary, stipend or grant funds for the research; made significant use of institution resources; or research was funded by a sponsor under an agreement or other legal obligation that restricts ownership of the intellectual property.
