Attention Syracuse University Inventors

Plan Early for Publications and Presentations in 2018

It is never too early to contact our office to discuss protecting the intellectual property that has been created by the researchers 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 Fall 2018.  Please contact our office with any questions regarding upcoming technology disclosures.
