  • Company information is protected through
    confidentiality agreements with UIUC researchers
  • Intellectual Property (IP) Ownership
  • UIUC owns IP developed at UIUC under sponsored
    research if company employees are co-inventors,
    then the resulting IP is jointly owned
  • Patenting Decisions and Control
  • UIUC will disclose to Company new IP developed
    under sponsored research in a timely manner
    Company can ask UIUC to file, at company expense

Typical Sponsored Research Terms
  • Commercial Rights in IP developed under agreement
  • Free, internal, research-use rights to Company
  • Option to negotiate commercial, royalty-bearing

    for internal research uses
  • Existing Background IP (BIP)
  • BIP of either party needed for a project is
    identified up-front
  • Company receives
  • an internal research use right to UIUC BIP, and
  • if available, an option to negotiate a
    non-exclusive, royalty-bearing commercial license
    to UIUC BIP, if UIUC BIP is required to make
    commercial use of UIUC IP
