Recording and Managing IP

About the Recording & Managing IP feasibility study

Recording and managing background and project-generated IP is essential to ensure a consistent approach to handling background IP and rights to use, and for clarity of IP ownership. When industry partners and funding bodies are involved, it becomes even more critical to appropriately record and manage IP.

This project is conducting a feasibility study to consider what existing systems and approaches to recording and managing IP across the UQ research community are currently in use, and to make recommendations on the best UQ-wide approach.

The benefits of the Recording & Managing IP feasibility study

The Recording and Managing IP feasibility study will give consideration and bring recommendations regarding:

  • Identification of a centralised platform for recording all relevant information on IP owned or used by UQ,
  • Greater efficiency in research commercialisation by easily establishing ‘chain of title’ on IP and identifying any encumbrances, and
  • Mitigation of risks associated with infringing IP rights of others or not sufficiently protecting UQ’s IP rights.
