2018 Prize Term UpdatesWe have updated the rules for participation from prior years, making it easier to participate in the competition. The three key changes for 2018 are:
- Nokia Bell Labs requests a license (without sublicensing rights) only to any “foreground” project IP created by the applicant in the course of the competition.
- IP jointly created by the applicant and Bell Labs researchers would be owned jointly by applicant/university and Nokia Bell Labs.
- Nokia grants the university a non-commercial research license for IP created solely by the Bell Labs researchers in the course of the competition (in cases where the university owns rights).
