Intellectual Property Committee

Intellectual Property Committee

The Louisiana Tech University Intellectual Property Policy (7112) establishes an advisory committee known as the Intellectual Property Committee to advise the President, Director of Research, and university on institutional intellectual property policies and the status and conduct of technology transfer efforts. The committee is also an advocate to University personnel for technology transfer efforts and assists in the conduct of the technology transfer policy by:

1. Evaluating ROIs and recommending university action
2. Conducting preliminary assessments of viability and making a recommendation to seek patents, to seek marketability of the invention, or to take other action
3. Recommending the equity positions of the university and inventor
4. Recommending how the intellectual property is to be assigned

The Committee is appointed by the President with the Vice President for Research and Development acting as the Chair. The Director of Office of Intellectual Property and Commercialization is a member of the committee and generally prepares the meeting agenda and makes his recommendation on matters brought before the committee.

The committee members for 2013-2014 are:
