WE HELP YOU TRANSFER THE RESULTS OF YOUR
ACADEMIC WORK TO ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY.
Whether you are at the idea stage or already have a patentable invention, a useful software program, or something else of value to someone outside the University, WE CAN support you in a variety of ways, from filing a patent application to finding a licensee to identifying sources of research funding. You’ll want to tell us before you publicly disclose your invention. Initiating patent protection before public disclosure allows you to preserve full rights.
What inventions should be disclosed?
If in doubt, talk to us first. In general we want to hear about anything that anyone outside the University might want, including compositions of matter, methods, instruments, algorithms, biological materials, software programs, or any product or concept of potential value.
