Noncommercial research license for patented technology
My design can be highly-optimized by utilizing a piece of technology patented by an educational institution here in the United States. I have contacted them about permission to use the tech and they would be willing to grant me a Noncommercial Research License for the means of this contest. If my product were to be selected and viable commercial applications presented, I would then have the means to procure a Commercial Research License. Is this a format that would fall in the guidelines of the challenge?
