The review is led by the Office of the Vice-President (Research) and stems from feedback received during consultations on Memorial’s Technology Transfer and Commercialization Strategy in 2015.
“We received constructive feedback indicating the university should revise its IP Policy, which has been in place since 2008, and develop a creator-owned policy,” said Dr. Ray Gosine, vice-president (research) pro tempore.
“The draft IP Policy balances the objective of encouraging greater entrepreneurship by our researchers with the need to facilitate sponsored research supported by the private sector, government and other external organizations which have an interest in access to IP developed at Memorial.”
The draft IP policy, as well as draft procedures, supporting documents and additional information, are available online.
Feedback from all Memorial campuses and external stakeholders will be accepted until Friday, April 7, at 5 p.m., via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or internal mail, Office of the Vice-President (Research), A-2021, St. John’s campus.
