Programs Patent ownership in PhD?

  1. Aug 2, 2011 #1
    What are different policies for patents derived from work done during a PhD?

    I know in Australia some unis (sydney, unsw, melbourne) give partial ownership, but in uk this is rare.

    What is it like in the us?

    I believe the patent it technically owned by the university, but your name is on it as inventor.
