Inventors’ team funded for 9-12 months of research for scientific proof-of-principal and market analysis. The company or funding agency may choose further funding or licensing of a student’s invention. Benchmark payments and royalties for the inventors would apply should any company or organization decide to proceed with commercialization. Faculty mentors and the Department providing the space and equipment for the development of patented marketable products by the teams will retain a percentage of the licensing benchmark payments and royalties.
