Research Support

Investigators need to consider the expectations of the sponsor related to intellectual property.  Some sponsors seek control over publications and documentations, or require ownership of all intellectual property resulting from the research.  Therefore, the investigators must be aware of the expectations of the sponsoring agency prior to engaging in the proposal and/or the project. 

The University's collective-bargaining agreement with the faculty contains provisions relating to intellectual property.  See Article XVI - Copyrights and Patents.
