Capiz State University (CAPSU) established the Intellectual Property Management Office (IPMO) to strengthen the Intellectual Property (IP) Management of the University. The IPMO is managed by the IPMO Director, Engr. Efren L. Linan. The IPMO Director handles all operations of the IPMO with the guidance and support of the Vice-president for Research Development and Extension (VPRDE), Dr. Lucy A. Beluso.
The IPMO provides assistance to researchers to secure attractive returns in the long term from the bulk of valuable research outcomes and intellectual property. It also assists researchers in identifying possible partners within the academe, other businesses and investors to promote translation of research innovations into new products through advice and support for early stage research and development. The IPMO provides a portfolio of new technologies created through University research for licensing or collaborative development.
The campuses and satellite colleges of the University have assigned their IPMO Chairs to monitor and evaluate their technologies and facilitate IP filing of their respective campus and satellite college.
