Intellectual Property & Conflict of Interest

 Intellectual Property Policy
The purpose of this Policy is to describe the Institute's approach to Intellectual Property generated in the context of research in and by the Institute: (a) in such a fashion as to be understandable to the Institute's staff, students and academic and industrial collaborators; (b) in such detail as to provide concrete guidelines in a practical framework; and (c) in sufficient clarity to delineate roles and responsibilities, rights and obligations and to avoid mis-understandings. 

pdfConflicts of Interest Policy
This policy sets out the procedures to be followed by the Institute in respect to actual, perceived or potential conflicts of interest. The Institute encourages staff and students to engage in external activities, many of which are also of benefit to The Institute. On occasion activities may give rise to Conflicts of Interest. This policy seeks to manage these Conflicts of Interest in a manner that is fair to all.
