Successful research projects often
result in the development of inventions by faculty members, students,
and staff members who have devoted long hours to their work. The SJSU
Research Foundation supports these efforts and encourages suitable commercialization
by equitably allocating ownership rights among inventors, the University,
and research sponsors.
|The SJSU Research Foundation serves as the campus agency
to assist in bringing inventions to the public marketplace and to
promote their greatest public benefit. The Research Foundation works with the
SJSU Associate Vice President for Graduate Studies and Research to
develop and execute agreements that may result in the division and
distribution of licensing fees, royalties, and other forms of income
from the commercialization of inventions.
