Before any disclosure of your invention, it is important to think about protecting it. Any premature disclosure may render it impossible to protect it correctly.
So, we recommend you complete the invention disclosure form before any public disclosure (verbal and/or written). This document contains the information necessary to begin the process of exploiting the results of your research.
It is important to complete this document with as many details as possible and to attach any supporting documentation that may help our teams to define the best means of protection and of promotion to pursue. The promotion experts of ADRE and Sopartec are available to help you complete the form.
N.B. : It must be pointed out that every invention will not necessarily lead to a patent application. Other means of protection may be used depending on the context: trademark, designs and models, copyright, etc. Other ways of promotion may be indentified: transfer and commercialisation of reactive agents (biological, chemical etc.), software, data bases, spin-off companies, etc.
