Faculty Researchers

Researchers at the University of Idaho may find that they discover or produce technologies of commercial significance. U of I has a process for disclosing and patenting inventions. Your partner in this process is the Office of Technology Transfer.

Not every invention submitted to the OTT will be successfully commercialized. Even successful commercialization cases can take years to complete. During this time, some of the team members invariably move on to other career paths. It makes sense for the research team to agree upon a royalty division among themselves while still employed or attending the university and document that in the invention disclosure form. For details concerning the university’s policies regarding royalties, please see Chapter 5: 5300, B-4, Royalties and Income, Faculty-Staff Handbook.
