Submit An Idea

Have a big IDEA? Tell us!

An idea. An invention. A discovery. Works of authorship. Intellectual property. Call it what you will, it’s of vital importance to us. Engage UVA LVG and let’s start the conversation about the next groundbreaking innovation!

Timely disclosure, before you make any public disclosures such as poster presentations or journal publications, will help us protect any intellectual property arising from your discovery. It will also help us keep you in compliance with UVA policies and those of any relevant funding agencies.

Note: These forms were updated in February 2013, streamlining and replacing multiple documents previously required to disclose, certify and assign intellectual property to the University.
