POLICY ON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The aim of the University in conducting research is the pursuit of knowledge for enriching the minds and lives of staff and students, and for the benefit of society as a whole. The University depends upon financial support primarily from the government and other organisations for its research activities. Consistent with this premise, the University seeks to ensure that any resultant intellectual property (IP) is administered in the public interest. As IP issues can be fairly complex and there cannot be rules to address every single possible situation, the IP Policy seeks to provide guidelines that can be applied consistently to arrive at a position that is as equitable as possible to all parties concerned. The main objective of the IP Policy is above all to facilitate the transfer of technology from the University to industry in order that research conducted at the University results in applications that benefit the public.

The rules and guidelines governing NTU’s Intellectual Property (IP) is set out in its “Policy on Intellectual Property, Technology Transfer and Research Collaboration” with additional information on IP ownership, disclosure requirements, share of rewards and other terms.
