Patents and Inventions

PI/PDs who believe they have a potential patent or invention should contact the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for further information on patent procedures. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs works very closely with WiSys on all issues/policies related to patents/inventions. It is the responsibility of the PI and the respective Dean or Director to assure that agreements entered into with Federal agencies, or with certain private agencies, are followed with respect to the reporting and handling of inventions and patents.
