  • Tell the University you have developed IP

    • Using IP Notification Form (Send to NSi)

  • Do not prematurely disclose invention to public (Patents need to be novel!)

  • Assignment of Intellectual Property

  • Re-assignment to staff members or students

    • When decision made not to commercialise

Patents a word of wisdom l.jpg

Patents - A word of wisdom

  • To be granted a patent the invention needs to be “novel”

    • So do not tell anyone!

  • In some countries the priority date is based on “First to invent” rather than “First to submit”

    • So laboratory notebooks are VERY IMPORTANT


Lab books l.jpg

Lab Books

  • VERY important

  • Deals with the “First to Invent” versus “First to Lodge” issue

  • Lab books should be;

    • Bound, have numbered pages, be signed and witnessed, written in ink, legible

  • Lab books are the property of the University
