Attention Syracuse University Inventors

Plan Early for Publications and Presentations in January 2018

Many faculty members use the winter break to finalize manuscripts and to present at conferences.  It is never too early to contact our office to discuss protecting the intellectual property that has been created at Syracuse University.  With the lead time needed to analyze invention disclosures and pursue patent protection (if warranted), inventors are encouraged to finalize invention disclosures as soon as possible, especially inventors that plan to present at conferences or finalize publication submissions in early 2018.  Please contact our office with any questions regarding upcoming technology disclosures.
