Consistent with ASU's System Policy, ASU's Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer is responsible for protecting faculty, staff, and student IP via copyrights and patents. It is likewise responsible for working collaboratively with the University's inventors in commercializing marketable technologies and in developing licensing agreements.
The first step in the process is to provide Office personnel with an Invention Disclosure. The disclosure will be followed by an assessment of the marketability of the creation or invention and application for copyrights and/or patents as appropriate.
