Submitting an Invention Disclosure 

Inventions are submitted to the university through an Invention Disclosure (.doc) (.pdf).  To facilitate the timely review and processing of your invention disclosure, all sections of the invention disclosure form must be completed.  The completed disclosure, signed by each contributing inventor, should be submitted to the Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) via e-mail (techtran@rice.edu). Alternatively, a paper copy of the completed and signed disclosure form can be delivered to the OTT at BRC Suite 1040. A disclosure should never be submitted to a licensing officer only, as his/her absence from the office could result in a delay in processing and even loss of certain patent rights.

If available, you are encouraged to also submit any additional information, such as PowerPoint presentations, manuscripts, etc., which provide supporting information that will assist the OTT in its assessment of the disclosure and filing of any patent application.
