Inventions and Patents

Inventors should complete the Invention Disclosure Form. Disclose also copyrightable materials (e.g. software) with a foreseeable commercialisation oppotunity. Inventors preparing for an Invention Evaluation Committee should use the Invention Evaluation Committee Template.

Contact us at tls@oist.jp for assistance for filling the forms.

For material transfer agreements (MTAs) please contact the Grants and Research Collaborations Section MTA for academic collaborations and the Technology Licensing Section at tls@oist.jp for Industrial Collaborations.

Refer to FAQ for definitions of "Inventions" and patent filing processes.
