Student Technology Transfer Goals

The goal of preparing and distributing these guidelines is fourfold:

·         Assist students in the commercialization of their products

·         Make inventions and creations resulting from the efforts of students available to industry and the public on an effective and nondiscriminatory basis

·         Obtain revenue for students who invent and create

·         Define the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved in development of Technology Transfer and Commercialization at PASSHE Universities

Since PASSHE only recently initiated a program to enhance its stewardship of its patent and related copyright activities, these policies and procedures are subject to ongoing review and possible future modification.

This document provides guidance for both the ordinary and the extraordinary academic situations, particularly for sponsorships, case studies, theses and dissertations.
