Intellectual Property (IP) Policy
The University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka (UOM) recognizes the need and desirability of encouraging the utilization of the results of research & development for national development by converting innovative findings to practical applications.
The purpose of this Intellectual Property Policy is to provide the necessary procedural framework for support: protection of the resulting Intellectual rights; specify incentives to encourage further engagement in research and development: and the requisite processes for the transfer of benefits at large with due retention of ownership rights.
(IP Policy, UOM, 2010)
The Intellectual Property contributes immensely to the knowledge-based economy when the use is optimized through commercialization. The University of Moratuwa (UOM) in its journey towards a world class University focuses on number of technologies commercialized out of its intellectual property as one of its Key Performance Indicators.
