INVENTION DISCLOSURE FORM (IDF)
Submitting Disclosure of Your Technology
You need to submit the details of your invention or innovation to the TTO via an Invention Disclosure Form after logging into your account. This submission shall include various sponsors of the research, if any and requires details of the technology being developed, some of its potential uses, potential customers, and allied inventions or products existing in the market place. All this is necessary to pursue IP protection and scout for potential commercialization partners. In case the inventor wishes to pursue his / her own startup based on the invention, it also needs to be declared in the form. If all the required information is not known upfront, TTO staff can assist you to fill the form.
First Step to Commercializing Your Technology
Inventors should submit the Invention Disclosure Form as early as possible in the inventive process, before a public disclosure of the idea or invention. The disclosure form needs specific information that helps evaluate invention’s patentability and commercial potential.
