Online Invention Disclosures at Georgetown University
We are pleased to announce that The Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) has a new electronic format for disclosure of inventions via our secure, private web-based database.
We highly encourage you to submit your disclosure online for easier input, editing, and review. OTC will review and process your invention disclosure per its normal procedures – but this format should allow for faster entry into our process.
We hope this will be the first step in granting access to the evaluation of your invention and to possible subsequent patent protection and prosecution proceedings.
