Australian universities are being encouraged to make their intellectual property available for free, after the University of NSW said it will offer IP licences to entrepreneurs at no charge. In a bid to stimulate the take-up of technology, UNSW will offer IP licences for a range of ideas and research results to entrepreneurs and companies at no cost. Licences will need to disclose how the information will be commercialised. If it is not exploited within three years, the university will reclaim the rights to use the information.
NEW YORK—Academic research and corporate research and development would appear to mix as well as oil and water given their vastly different cultures and objectives. Yet collaborations among universities and businesses are crucial not only to making new discoveries but also to ensuring that breakthroughs in science and technology find their way to the people who need them. Academics have a history of either giving away too much of their intellectual property to corporate partners or of making it too difficult for companies to license the technology, David Skorton , president of Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., said Tuesday during a panel discussion hosted by the New York Academy of Sciences and sponsored in part by pharmaceuticals maker Johnson & Johnson.
