Featured Topic: Patents and Copyrights for UT Researchers 

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

  • I think I invented something. Now what?
  • How do I get a patent? How much does it cost? Who pays?
  • I wrote some software as part of my research, and I want to release it. What does UT recommend?
  • I don't want to delay publishing papers. Can I still get a patent?
  • How can UT help with startups?

Join us to get answers to these questions and more! 

OTC welcomes all UT faculty, researchers, postdocs, graduate students, and staff. Feel free to bring your lunch and any questions you have about patents, copyrights, intellectual property, licensing, and commercialization!
