What are my rights and obligations regarding intellectual property or patents resulting from my work or from collaboration with other Weizmann scientists?

Staff scientists, and other researchers in the Weizmann Institute, are bound by the same rules of intellectual property.

A Staff Scientist working as part of a research group shall not be considered to be the “Chief Investigator,” and thus he may only obtain the role of “inventor” or “contributor” to a patent invention and his share (%) in the patent royalties will be determined by the Chief Investigator(s).

If a Staff Scientist feels that his contribution has not been properly attributed on the patent application is advised to contact their sectorial representative from the staff scientists council on how best to proceed with the matter.
