Intellectual property

Research and commercial projects involving the generation and potential commercialisation of intellectual property may require specific agreements, registrations and formal disclosures to protect and manage the IP generated. A commercialisation agreement will be entered either via the research project agreement or via a separate commercialisation agreement.

Some Research projects may require completion of an Intellectual Property assignment perhaps involving outside bodies and the University. Please check with your Supervisor(s) and/or School’s Higher Degrees by Research Coordinator whether this will apply to your research. If it does apply, kindly request your supervisor to arrange a meeting for you with the Contract Development Management Team at the College office. You may be required to complete the Student Participation Agreement.

Please read RMIT’s Intellectual Property Policy, for further details.
