Intellectual property & commercialisation

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead supports and encourages staff and students to develop ideas which might have commercial potential.

Our Intellectual Property Committee has been established to assist in facilitating the protection, ownership and commercialisation of IP in health and medical research and to assist the Network’s Executive to oversee the strategic planning relevant to IP and Commercialisation.

Our Intellectual Property Committee liaises with a number of patent and commercialisation advisors to ensure that all IP is considered in a fair and equitable manner.
