Introduction to the Intellectual Property Division

The Intellectual Property Division claims and exploits the intellectual property rights pertaining to research undertaken in the University. The division files patent applications, and protects and manages the rights in addition to educating staff in the University on intellectual property matters. The Division also plans tactics for exploitation and negotiates agreements for joint patent applications including liaising between University groups and external parties.
The Intellectual Property Division aims to maximize the use of intellectual properties created as results of research undertaken at the University.
