You Own The IP

The intellectual property (IP) policy for companies partnering with Penn State in Knowledge Park is simple: If you pay for the project, you own the IP. That’s the rule rather than the exception, intended to flatten barriers to innovation in our industry-academic partnerships.

You Tap Into Our Talent

Knowledge Park is designed for organizations looking to develop partnerships with Penn State, with other like-minded companies, and other institutions of higher education in order to accelerate their competitive advantage. The park brings forward-thinking organizations together with faculty, staff, and students providing access to interns, part- and full-time employees, and fundamental and applied research.
