The Innovation Office may, under certain circumstances and terms, release an invention to the inventor(s). For further explanation of when a release may be provided, please contact us directly (041 504 4309).

If the University does decide to release its rights in the invention back to the inventor(s), the inventor(s) must sign a letter stating he/she will not use University funds and facilities for further research or development of the invention. When ownership is released, patent prosecution and licensing becomes the responsibility of the inventor(s). Please contact the Innovation Office (041 504 2546) to discuss the issue further.
