Protecting Your Innovation

Thursday, April 15, 2021

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Most faculty spend a lifetime developing something innovative, but some will see the commercial value of their invention disappear in a matter of moments.

Intellectual Property disclosure is not only required by university policy, but is a very necessary step in protecting new discoveries and ensuring a path to public use. The disclosure process is not intended to delay any research or publication activities, but is designed to work alongside those activities to protect intellectual property before any public disclosures take place that may impact IP rights.

In this workshop, we will review the IP disclosure process at UH and answer any questions about filling out an invention disclosure. We will share the criteria we use to assess those disclosures for IP protection and ultimately to lay out a strategy to get technology into the market and to benefit the public.

This workshop is brought to you by the UH Office of Technology Transfer and Innovation.
