We’re here for you
An Invention Consultation is your chance to meet with an OTC licensing expert to explore how your research can translate out of the university, onto a successful path to commercialization. There is no need to fill out any paperwork- just call us or come to one of our “office hours” (see below).
In your Invention Consultation, we’ll talk with you about…
- Your research/technology, the current status of any intellectual property, and where you are in the development path
- Strategies for protecting and further developing your invention
- Programs available to assist in start-up formation
- Possible sources of funding and support both within Duke and in the community
- We can also come to your department/lab for “Innovation & Entrepreneurship office hours”.
- Get easy access to ask advice on all the questions above and more!
