Description: “To have a great idea, have a lot of them.” – Thomas Edison

Like a great idea, this Intellectual Property workshop starts at the beginning.  This three hour workshop is designed to give participants a basic understanding of intellectual property; intellectual property rights and responsibilities; the Bayh-Dole Act and recipient compliance with the Act; and Inventions & Reporting via iEdison.  Participants will interact with NIH staff and a NIH grantee by participating in case studies and asking questions.

Intellectual Property:  An In-depth Look at iEdison

This four hour intellectual property workshop is intended for Grants Management, Sponsored Program, or Technology Transfer Professionals who have a basic understanding of intellectual property, intellectual property rights and responsibilities, the Bayh-Dole Act, and Inventions & Reporting via iEdison.

Description: “Anything that won’t sell, I don’t want to invent. Its sale is proof of utility, and utility is success.” – Thomas Edison

Now that you have an NIH funded invention, how do you comply with NIH policies and the Bayh-Dole Act while shepherding your invention to success?  This is a four hour workshop for intermediate-advanced Grants Management, Sponsored Program, or Technology Transfer Professionals is designed to give participants a demonstration of Interagency Edison. To educate participants about compliance requirements, NIH faculty and a NIH grantee will provide a demonstrative walk through of the iEdison process from creating an iEdison account and disclosing inventions to reporting patent applications and patents to requesting waivers & submitting utilization reports and final invention statements. This workshop will also provide participants with an update regarding pending changes to the Bayh-Dole Act and an opportunity to participate in case studies and ask questions.
