IP Patenting

The CEI is the unit of the university that protects the Intellectual Property of Researchers, for both staff and students of the University of Ibadan. The CEI also processes patent approval for members of the university community who submit the descriptions of their research findings, innovations and inventions. This is done in collaboration with the CEI consultant who does the web search and recommends patentable inventions for further processing and approval at the Patent Registry in Abuja.

The CEI ensures that discoveries, inventions and creations generated by staff and students are utilized in ways most likely to benefit the public as well as advise on the commercialisation of
approved patents.
