The purpose of the Schedule D is for the applicant’s organization and other parties to agree to Intellectual Property (IP) terms as a result of the project.
For all applications, terms governing intellectual property must be agreed by all parties prior to submission of an application to OCE. This includes all academic-based applications, where the terms must be agreed to by both the University (Research Partner) and the Industry Partner (Client). The intellectual property terms will form Schedule D to the OCE application, and the OCE agreement for successful proposals.
If the application is successful, the executed IP Agreement will be referenced in the OCE Schedule D Research Agreement Template and appended to the standard funding agreement generated by OCE to govern the project.
Institution Schedule D-IP terms vary from institution to institution. To obtain standard Schedule D-IP terms, contact the respective Office of Research directly.
OCE’s position is that OCE does not claim or manage IP rights.
