All data rights resulting from employment in universities or the use of university funds belong to the university. Ownership of copyrighted documents and data developed under a contract or promotion by a commercial sponsor is generally owned by the university. As a university, the university must ensure that the data, information and materials for academic dissemination and scientific validation obtained during the research remain widely available. Maintaining the rights to these research products allows the university to ensure that its faculty can continue its research without undue hindrance. With regard to employment, all employees of higher education must sign a patent confirmation requiring that they disclose all inventions or discoveries designed or developed during their activity at the university. In addition, non-UC employees authorized to use university research institutes are required to sign the university`s patent confirmation contract before using these institutions. This agreement requires the allocation of all inventions made in the context of university employment as well as all inventions made by non-UC employees using academic institutions. The university retains ownership of inventions developed by university staff as well as inventions of visitors using academic institutions, whether the research is funded by the university or by non-academic sponsors. The proponent of the research project that produces an invention may have the right to negotiate a commercial license. Licensing negotiations take place after the university researcher discloses an invention.
