For Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Engage and Engage for Colleges projects, any Intellectual Property (IP) arising from the project will belong to the company.
Otherwise, IP rights will be managed by the project participants as Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) does not claim or manage IP rights. Intellectual property should be managed in a way that will result in a benefit to Ontario.
Applicants and their partners must provide a Schedule D – Intellectual Property Term Sheet upon submission of their application. The Schedule D may consist of a summary outline (maximum 2 pages) or a previously existing collaboration agreement that includes IP terms.
