Policy and Practice Governing Faculty Inventors: Protecting Your University While Building Solid Relationships for Lasting Success

Establishing, reviewing, and revising policies and practices that govern sensitive issues surrounding the commercialization of faculty research is no easy task. From IP ownership and conflicts of interest to faculty incentives and disclosure management challenges, the policies and strategies you use form the foundation of your faculty relationships while also serving as a firewall against compliance problems, legal disputes, and public relations nightmares.

Policy and Practice Governing Faculty Inventors: Protecting Your University While Building Solid Relationships for Lasting Success is a four-hour collection of distance learning programs that identifies best practices and proven strategies from your peers who have successfully tackled policy issues and implemented key practices to protect the university while also building solid relationships with inventive faculty. The four programs included in the collection are:

  • Blurred Lines and Gray Areas: Managing Conflicts of Interest in University Tech Transfer and Sponsored Research
  • Departing Faculty: How to Protect University IP, Avoid Legal Disputes, and Preserve Funding
  • Amending University IP Ownership Policies to Boost Disclosures and Corporate Interest
