How does EAIP work?
The EAIP triage system sorts projects into:
- commercially valuable projects (based on a nominal value of more then $1M)
- projects suitable for EAIP using normal commercial methods (see if your invention is right for EAIP).
In return for access to intellectual property (IP) via an EAIP Licence, licensees must:
- demonstrate how they will create value for society and the economy
- acknowledge the University (researchers) as the originator(s) of the intellectual property
- report annually on progress in the development of the EAIP
- agree that if the IP is not exploited within 3 years, the EAIP Licence will be revoked
- agree that there will be no limitations on the University's use of the IP for its own research.
Ongoing reporting is a means of sustaining dialogue conversation between researchers and licensees.
