Forms & Documents


Invention Disclosures 

The Invention Disclosure is the form needed to notify our office of any invention, via both sponsored and unsponsored research, that has been conceived of while working at the University of Dayton or UDRI.  This document begins the process of evaluation whereby the OTEP elects to pursue protection of intellectual property.  Copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secret are all various means to accomplish this protection and may be utilized by the office with the ultimate goal of licensing to industry.
