Intellectual Property Policy

The policy provides clear guidance for maximising the impact of IP, and criteria for the incentivisation, management, and governance of IP exploitation.

The University’s Intellectual Property Policy governs the ownership of rights emanating from research of and/or materials produced by the University’s employees and students, and its obligations to public and private sector partners. It draws on the Patents Act 1977, the Copyright and, Designs and Patents Act 1988 the Bribery Act 2010 and should be read in conjunction with the University’s Conflict of Interest Policy.
