Under the Intellectual Property clause, you agreed to disclose all inventions – even those made on your own time or as a consultant – to the Innovation Office so that we can determine if the University has any rights to the invention. You will be entitled to own your invention if: a) you made the invention without using any university facilities or resources, b) the invention is not subject to a third party obligation, such as a sponsored research grant, and c) the subject matter of the invention falls outside the scope of the subject matter of the research conducted by you and your immediate work group. Please contact the Innovation Office (041 504 2546) directly to discuss the issue further.
