When you disclose your invention to the Technology Transfer and Business Development Office (TTBDO) of your campus, you make your technology better prepared for application and commercial use. You also support the University in protecting intellectual property rights – and wherever intellectual property is recognized and respected, researchers and inventors are inspired to develop more new useful products and processes.
Moreover, you become eligible for the Invention Disclosure Incentive (IDI), a monetary award given to a researcher, faculty member, student, staff or visiting professor who reports the existence of a research or invention and assigns the patent and other related rights to the University in accordance with the UP Intellectual Property Rights Policy. The program, project grant or contract leading to the invention must be under the auspices of the University.
The IDI was approved by the UP Board of Regents during its 1305th meeting on 29 January 2015 while its implementing guidelines were endorsed by the UP System Technology Transfer and Business Development Office (TTBDO) Executive Committee led by the TTO directors of different constituent units.
With the IDI, the University hopes to encourage early disclosure of innovations, reward the diligence of inventors through the patenting and technology transfer process, and enlarge and enhance its intellectual property portfolio.
