The University recognizes the multiple benefits of the transfer and exploitation of scientific research results for the institution, its employees and the larger society. As such it encourages interactions and collaborations with external academic partners as well as with industry or any other type of organizations.

Through the definition of several ground rules regarding the Intellectual Property (IP) created by its researchers, the University ensures that project results are managed in a consistent and clear manner. The key points of the University's policy with respect to its IP are summarized in the IP Policy Flyer.
