Intellectual property

The University strives to foster an environment, culture and systems where commercialisation, technology transfer and entrepreneurial endeavour are core elements. The University is committed to ensuring its intellectual property is properly protected, managed and where possible, commercialised.

The University is also committed to ensuring that the full value of any intellectual property is realised for the benefit of the University, in accordance with its mission, goals and objectives, as well as prevailing community and legislated standards of best practice.

CDU’s Intellectual Property Policy provides a framework for dealing with intellectual property generated at the University, and is applicable to both staff and students.

Enquiries concerning these or related matters, including guidance concerning intellectual property clauses in any research contract, should be directed to the Manager, Research Grants and Business Development.
