Exit Interview

As a general rule, inventions by LSU employees during their employment at LSU belong to LSU, even when the inventor later leaves LSU for one reason or another. An inventor who leaves LSU will continue to share in Distributable Royalties arising from inventions made while at LSU. If appropriate, an LSU employee should contact the Office of Innovation & Technology Commercialization or his/her department chair to schedule an "exit interview" before leaving LSU. At the exit interview, LSU's policies on intellectual property will be reviewed, and the departing employee will be asked to make a final disclosure of any inventions not previously disclosed to the Office of Innovation & Technology Commercialization.
