Intellectual Property (IP) Protection

Intellectual property (IP), including patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets, are valuable assets for both research and business environments.



Center ICE partners with UAF’s Office of Intellectual Property and Commercialization (OIPC) to support and protect intellectual property.

Center ICE’s intellectual property services are only available to UA faculty, staff, and students, though we're happy to chat with community members and direct them to other available resources. Center ICE’s IP services are available anytime!
