Invention Disclosure Review Process

While the cost of prosecuting a patent may be significant, all inventions that are elected for patenting by the patent committee are filed at no cost to the inventor. Pursuing patent protection through the Technology Transfer Center presents several unique benefits and opportunities for inventors. If there are any questions, please contact a staff member or email us at techtransfer@udel.edu.

Please note that University of Delaware’s Office of General Counsel oversees all legal services for the University of Delaware. Matters pertaining to research (including research-related agreements, research-related compliance, and research-related intellectual property) may be directed to the Research Office, which will coordinate with the General Counsel’s Office, as appropriate.
