Intellectual property

Genomics Aotearoa aims to benefit New Zealand through better use of genomics in the fields of health, the environment and primary production. We work with a range of partners and associates who are experts in research translation and in delivery of outcomes and new technologies.

Our IP policy is designed to make technology transfer easy, so that discoveries we make can be rapidly passed on to experts in translation in the appropriate area for them to commercialise. We use a royalty free licence approach to ensure that benefit does accrue to New Zealanders, and that we can get some measurement of the impact of our work.
