When it comes to commercializing your research, do you know the four requirements to avoid conflict of interest issues?
- Disclose clearly and fully all facts around your proposed activity
- Agree to a management plan and follow it
- Don’t use University services or assets for non-University business without prior permission and payment
- If you have any uncertainty or doubt, discuss questions or concerns with your College Approver or, for sponsored projects, the Office of Research Integrity & Safety
