IP Advising, Protection & Licensing

Work with innovation managers – even before you disclose an innovation

If it’s your first time working with us, the first step is to submit a Consultation Request form so that we can match you with an Innovation Manager knowledgeable about your area of research. You should receive a response within two business days. Our Innovation Managers have advanced degrees and extensive experience in a broad range of high-demand technical areas.

Submit a Record of Innovation (ROI) form to disclose innovations to UW CoMotion, including mechanical devices, materials, software, digital media and copyrighted works. If you have questions, please submit a Consultation Request form before completing the ROI form.

If you have questions feel free to reach out to us at uwinvent@uw.edu or (206) 543-3970.
