Policy Statement

Commercializing your innovation begins with an initial disclosure to the Office of Technology Licensing. Through this process, Office of Technology Licensing can record the innovation, determine what form of intellectual property is involved and any sponsor rights, establish accurate inventorship and ownership interests in the innovation, and determine through various means of evaluation whether the innovation has commercial potential. Innovations should be reported to the Office of Technology Licensing as early as possible in the discovery process to ensure protection of intellectual property and to gain a comprehensive understanding of the options available in commercializing your research.

Scope

This policy applies to all Georgia Tech Faculty and Staff.
