Learn the basics of invention disclosure evaluation and selection using a triage approach. Invention triage is based on the principle that concentrating effort where it can make the most difference maximizes results. It combines effective invention disclosure evaluation and assessment with efficient management of the limited technology transfer resources of both time and money.
We begin with a step-by-step description of invention disclosure evaluation and triage followed by examples of how to evaluate new disclosures using sample inventions. The session ends with a presentation of a simple evaluation tool for making critical decisions about moving forward with patenting and marketing new technology.
