Within six (6) weeks of the effective date of the ARPA-E Award
ARPA-E requires every Project Team in which more than one team member will perform research and development work or share technical data, to negotiate and establish an Intellectual Property Management Plan for the management and disposition of intellectual property arising from the project. In addition, ARPA-E requires each Prime Recipient, regardless of whether there are other team members, to submit a Data Management Plan (DMP) that addresses how data generated in the course of the work performed under an ARPA-E Award will be preserved and, as appropriate, shared publicly. A DMP should be submitted by the Prime Recipient as part of the Project Team’s Intellectual Property Management Plan.
All Intellectual Property Management Plans and DMPs are subject to the terms and conditions of the ARPA-E funding agreement and its intellectual property provisions, and applicable Federal laws, regulations, and policies, all of which take precedence over the terms of Intellectual Property Management Plans and DMPs. DMPs will be reviewed by ARPA-E as part of the overall review process for Intellectual Property Management Plans in ARPA-E’s ePIC System, as well as part of the ARPA-E Program Director’s overall project management review processes.
ARPA-E has developed a template for Intellectual Property Management Plans:
