Intellectual Property

Successful university inventions create value through economic and societal utility and provide economic return to CWRU, including its faculty inventors, schools and departments. In fact, CWRU shares 50% of the first $100,000 of net income, and 42.5% of all net income thereafter, to its creators—representing one of the most generous distribution policies in the United States. 

For further information, please review the full CWRU Intellectual Property Policy‌.
