National Principles

The National Principles of IP Management for Publicly Funded Research were developed by a working party of the Australian Government’s Coordinating Committee on Innovation.

The National Principles of IP Management for Publicly Funded Research were developed to assist researchers, research managers and research institutions develop best practice in identifying protecting and managing IP, thus ensuring appropriate commercial outcomes from publicly funded research.

The intention of the National Principles is simply to improve the commercial outcomes from publicly funded research where a commercial outcome is appropriate.NHMRC publicly announced the adoption of these National Principles in April 2013.
