Attention Syracuse University Inventors

Plan Early for Publications and Presentations in 2019

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 early 2019.  Please contact our office with any questions regarding upcoming technology disclosures.

Congratulations to Inventors – 11 Patents Issued During 2017-2018 Academic Year!

The Office of Technology Transfer congratulates the researchers who have had patents issue during the 2017-2018 academic year.

It takes dedication from our researchers to ideate a novel concept, work through the filing of the applications and to respond to all the requests throughout the patenting process.  It is an accomplishment to see the patent ultimately issue from the US Patent & Trademark Office.  We wish to thank the inventors for their commitment and recognize this accomplishment.

Please note:  Patents and patent applications are added to Experts@Syracuse quarterly, soon after they are made public.  They are listed in the “Research Output” section.

This list represents 11 patents issued affiliated with the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Engineering & Computer Science, and the School of Information Studies.
