Pieces representing a connected world

The University Patent Committee is composed of 4 members and a Chair of the committee.

The Patent Committee reviews disclosure of an invention and forwards a recommendation to the University President concerning such discovery. Such recommendation shall include: (1) the committee’s opinion whether the University has an ownership interest in the invention in question, or whether such invention was one developed on personal time and without use of University facilities; and (2) whether and how the University should assert and exploit its ownership interest in any invention or discovery.
