As a Principal Member, Schneider will gain access to privileged CPES intellectual properties as a part of the CPES Intellectual Property Protection Fund. The will also enjoy the additional benefits of CPES membership, including access to CPES research results, researchers, and facilities, technical exchanges, and continuing education opportunities.

The IPPF is a unique IP access mechanism that provides extraordinary IP advantage to all Principal-level members. IPPF is available automatically, at no additional cost, to Principal Plus and Principal members. IPPF members meet quarterly via telecon with inventors to discuss invention disclosures and jointly decide which technologies to protect, with patenting costs covered by IPPF. Once a technology is protected, IPPF members are granted a royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the technology. IPPF is applicable only to technologies developed by CPES-VT researchers under the CPES industry consortium.
