Who Owns Intellectual Property at MIT? Navigating the MIT IP Policy

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 12:30pm to 2:00pm

Building E25, 111
45 CARLETON ST, Cambridge, MA 02142

Per MIT Policy, the Institute owns some of the intellectual property that is created during research at MIT. Having a clear understanding of the what, why, and the implications of this Policy is paramount. 

What does it mean for MIT to own intellectual property? What are the implications of signing the Inventions and Proprietary Information Agreement (IPIA)? How does this impact entrepreneurship and innovation at MIT?

This seminar offers an overview of intellectual property policy and processes at MIT and its implications for researchers contributing to discovery through MIT intellectual endeavors. Geared towards principal investigators, students, and other potential inventors; open to members of the MIT Community only.

This session is part of the "2020 Intellectual Property Speaker Series" co-sponsored by the Technology Licensing Office and MIT Libraries. Lunch will be provided to attendees of the Intellectual Property Speaker Series events. Please register for the seminar and for lunch. Please note that lunch will be served from 11:30am-12:30pm.


Free swag will be given participants who attend any 6 sessions from this series, so please check out our other sessions! http://mit_tlo.eventbrite.com
