The Intellectual Property Committee (IP Committee) has prepared a form, Disclosure of invention, in order to make it easier for staff and doctural students at the University of Iceland and Landspítali University Hospital to submit an invention to the committee. The IP Committee bases its decision concerning technology transfer on the disclosure.
When the IP Committee receives a disclosure from a staff member / student, the committee considers possibilities in protecting the invention with a patent, or other registered intellectual property rights where the aim is to license or sell the invention to a third party. In some cases it may be preferable to found a company or establish a collaborative project with an external party possessing the specialist knowledge and resources necessary for transferring the technology. It should be kept in mind that the involvement of the IP Committee differs depending on the nature and status of the project.
Please submit the Disclosure to Svavar Steinarr Guðmundsson, secretary of the IP Committee, at the University of Iceland Division of Science and Innovation.
