The President and Fellows of Harvard College adopted the Statement of Policy in Regard to Intellectual Property, on February 4, 2008. This Policy, as it may be amended from time to time, applies to all members of the University and visitors who perform research in Harvard facilities. Also, Federal policy requires the University to obtain written agreements from anyone performing research under a federally sponsored program regarding their obligations for reporting and assignment of inventions.
Each person performing research at Harvard should sign either the Harvard University Participation Agreement or the Harvard University Visitor Participation Agreement as applicable.
