Profit Sharing with the NSF Gail Wine 24 Oct 1994 09:02 EST

While waiting for NSF to return my phone call, I thought I'd throw
this question out here.  What is NSF's policy on sharing in profits
that result from research funded by them?  We have 2 professors who
are heading into their own profit-making realms (while still remaining
on the faculty).  One is publishing a textbook based on the results of
a curriculum development grant; the other is starting his own business
in 3-D computer animation as a lab tool in introductory science
courses.  The development of this technique was also funded by an NSF

Has anyone else had any experience with this?

I posted this last week, but never saw it show up, so I'm trying
again.  Hope it doesn't get posted twice now!
