    Be Innovative

    The path toward innovation begins with invention.

  • 2
    Disclose Your Inventions

    UVA inventors have a responsibility to disclose their inventions to UVA and UVA has an obligation to disclose those federally funded inventions to the federal funding agency.

  • 3
    Elect Title

    The fundamental premise of the Bayh-Dole Act is the empowerment of all funded institutions to elect title to their inventions in exchange for commitments to seek their dissemination.

  • 4
    File A Patent

    The purpose of the United States patent system is “to promote the progress of science and the useful arts”. Accordingly, the Bayh-Dole Act obligates us to file patent applications as a means to support of our commercialization efforts.

  • 5
    Seek "Expeditious Practical Application"

    Thomas Jefferson once said, “Where a new invention promises to be useful, it ought to be tried.” It is our responsibility as innovators to drive our inventions ahead – leveraging the patent system and commercial enterprise where appropriate and prudent.

    Distribute Revenues

    Should UVA be successful commercializing an invention, UVA will share net revenues with the inventors and reinvest in research, innovation, and scholarly activities.
