Policy Statement

Georgia Tech Research Corporation asserts a right of ownership to any intellectual property that was developed by an employee of Georgia Tech or resulted from significant use of Georgia Tech resources, even in research projects sponsored by industry. However, GTRC has worked hard to create and establish mechanisms that enable companies to easily obtain access to the project IP on fair and reasonable terms with minimal negotiations.


This policy applies to all Georgia Tech Faculty and Staff.
