Inventors' Forum

The Office of Technology Commercialization has created the Inventors’ Forum in order to share commercialization information and resources with the university community and beyond. Through this series, we will engage with a range of topics from commercialization basics, to non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), intellectual property, patents, licensing, startups, and much more. These conversations will not only include those experienced in commercialization efforts here at the university; but also will draw on the network of resources and experts from the region and beyond. These series are open to all who would like to attend and participate. Please join us to learn more about how to commercialize your technology, and to meet other like-minded professionals with similar interests and experiences.
