For Inventors and Creators

Have you discovered something that you think might be patentable or otherwise protectable? It could be an apparatus, process or composition of matter that is useful and unique. If you have, contact our office or complete an invention disclosure form. We are here to advise and assist you.

We have created the Tech Transfer FAQ that answers many of the common questions you may have. In addition, you may find our "Intellectual Property Handbook: A Handbook for KSU Faculty and Researchers" a valuable resource for understanding the intellectual property policies and the technolgy transfer process.
