Stage 1: Pre-Disclosure

The most effective invention disclosures are those in which the principal investigator (PI) was in contact with his or her technology commercialization manager prior to disclosing. We encourage University researchers to contact our team of technology commercialization managers to discuss your invention prior to disclosure. This will help maximize the impact of your invention. Our team will be able to help you understand how your invention could be embodied as a product or service and what other factors you should be considering.
