As a leader in research and innovation, the University of Adelaide encourages an entrepreneurial environment and culture for its staff and students.
We are committed to engaging and partnering with industry in the translation of our research to create economic, environmental and social benefits both in Australia and globally.
Our approach to managing IP is based on six key principles:
- We promote dissemination of the knowledge created by our research, either through open access or commercialisation.
- We're committed to partnering with industry, entrepreneurs, investors, governments and the broader community to translate our research for society's benefit.
- We ensure IP access, ownership and revenue sharing arrangements are clear, fair and work to deliver optimal impact for all parties.
- We're transparent in our commercial dealings and provide access to our Intellectual Property Policy and template agreements.
- We deliver a high-quality service for both internal and external stakeholders, and deal with all commercial and partnerships agreements and communications in a timely manner.
- We encourage inventors to be active participants in the translation process, and recognise this with a share of the net revenue resulting from commercialisation.

We have also created a PowerPoint slide for researchers to include in their presentations to industry.
