The documents relating to IP at our university have been designed to help the university academic partners draw-up such agreements in shorter timescales. Clearly all circumstances are different so these documents are to be considered a starting point.
For support in completing documents before entering into a binding agreement please contact university Director of Knowledge Exchange firstname.lastname@example.org or t: +44(0)1463 279 287.
IP and commercialisation
The following guides were originally commissioned and created by Mr Clive Rowland, CEO, the University of Manchester Intellectual Property (UMIP) Limited and Ms Janet Knowles, Partner, Eversheds LLP.
UMIP has kindly offered this resource to be shared for the benefit of those working to commercialise academic research. Our thanks go to UMIP for giving access to these publications:
- Academic materials and publishing
- Intellectual property and confidentiality
- Intellectual property workbook
- Research contracts
- Spin-out companies
