Disclosing your IP information
The CAU Office of Technology Transfer (T2) is responsible for managing the protection and licensing of CAU discoveries with potential commercial value. By using intellectual property law to protect discoveries with potential commercial value, our office can hopefully encourage interested companies to invest the resources necessary to turn an early stage academic discovery into a commercial product.
Disclosing Innovations Developed at CAU
If, in the course of your CAU research, you believe you have discovered something of potential commercial value or commercial relevance, the first step is to complete the appropriate invention disclosure form. T2 has two main disclosure forms: one for potentially patentable inventions (such as new compositions of matter, devices, or processes) and one for copyrightable materials (such as computer software or multi-media materials).
As copyright and patent law differ, it is important to use the correct disclosure form. Please contact T2 if you have any questions regarding the appropriate form to use.
