RSP, in conjunction with the IP Committee, handles the marketing, licensing and patenting of University technologies. The IP Committee works closely with RSP and faculty in the identification, protection and licensing of new inventions as contemplated by the University's Intellectual Property Policy and the UFF Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The Associate Vice President for Research recommends to the Provost members to serve on the IP Committee from time to time. Generally, members will include the AVP for Research, the Vice President for Business, Finance, and Facilities (as such division may be denominated), the Chief Information Officer, and a representative from the Office of General Counsel. The Interim Associate Director for Research and Sponsored Programs and the Grants Specialist Supervisor serve as ex officio (non-voting) members and staff to the Committee. Additional members or consultants may be added at the discretion of the AVP of Research based upon expertise or special needs of the Committee.
