Event Details

Learn how to identify, protect, and commercialize

your inventive ideas & software. 

In the space between “what starts here” and “changes the world”, researchers at UT Austin routinely face some of these questions:

  • How does UT commercialize software?
  • What's the right way to make it open source?
  • What about copyrights for software I create?
  • I think I invented something. Now what?
  • How do I get a patent? How much does it cost? Who pays?
  • I don't want to delay publishing papers. Can I still get a patent?
  • How can UT help with startups?

 Join us at Catapult IP@UT: Workshops for UT Inventors to get answers to these questions and more!

OTC welcomes all UT faculty, researchers, postdocs and graduate students who want to learn about inventing in academia, SBIR funding, or commercialization.
