As the global knowledge economy grows each year, the importance of intellectual property (IP) policy also grows for non-profit organizations such as universities. Pretty much every organization has an IP portfolio of some kind and value, whether or not the organization realizes it as such. As a result, almost every organization needs an IP policy model, even if it’s a simple one.
This presentation is intended to help the universities and other research organizations to set IP policy model to optimise the benefits from the intellectual assets created by their staff and students. The presented model, which was adopted at the University of Maribor, does not provide an IP policy that can be applied across all organizations as there is no “one size fits all” approach to IP management. But, it identifies the key features that need to be considered in order to build a strategic framework for the managing of IP, as for example the issues of ownership, protection and sharing of the economic benefits arising from the commercial exploitation of IP created by researchers in the course of their duties or activities at the university.
