Conflicts of interest, and how to manage them
Engagement of faculty with private enterprises to commercialize their technology has a potential to lead to conflict of interest and commitment issues for faculty and IU. To ensure that any such potential conflict is identified and managed to protect faculty, student and institutional concerns, IU has established a Conflict of Interest Management process.
