Step 2: Assessment
After an innovation disclosure has been submitted to our office, we begin a 2- to 3-month review process to assess your invention. An initial inventor meeting between our team and the inventor(s) is scheduled within two weeks of receiving the Invention Disclosure Form to ensure proper understanding of the invention.
During this process, someone from our team may contact you with additional questions.
Intellectual Property Assessment
If the technology receives a favorable screening, next steps may include filing patent applications and moving the invention to the protection stage of the technology commercialization process. Otherwise, the invention will be returned to you.
