Detail

This policy addresses how the Edge Hill University (the University) manages Intellectual Property (IP) generated by its Employees, Students or by Third Parties related to the organisation.  Section 5.9 to 5.12 deals specifically with IP generation by students. The University acknowledges that students will normally own the IP for works they produce.  However, in relation to any works Students submit for assessment, the University retains the right to keep the submission for aIn doing so, the University acknowledges that for some types of works submitted by students for assessment it will not be possible to maintain a copy (e.g. artworks etc.) and therefore for works submitted by students for assessment the University reserves the right to retain or refer to that submission until such time as all processes relating to outcome ratification are complete.  In a limited number of circumstances, students will not own the IP for the work they produce and this is detailed in section 5.11.

  2. In certain circumstances, students will not own the IP for the work they produce (as detailed in section 5.11 of the policy)
