THE CENTER FOR RESEARCH INNOVATION
7. Commercialization & Patenting
If a non-provisional patent application is filed, the CRI Commercialization team will continue its efforts in marketing the technology to industry. Using a variety of channels, the CRI, along with its marketing partners will seek companies interested in commercializing the technology. We may help to facilitate meetings and discussions between the inventors and interested parties, and coordinate the execution of non-disclosure agreements, material transfer agreements, and license agreements. While seeking commercial collaborations with companies, we will continue to share all industry feedback with the inventors, and will use that feedback to help inform our ongoing patent prosecution decisions.
Patent prosecution will be ongoing and will require the inventor’s continued involvement with response to any office actions. Inventors will be notified of granted patents.
