As we receive your notification form, we will send you a RECORD OF INVENTION FORM. Please complete and submit it to IPO.

RECORD OF INVENTION FORM includes summary, background, experimental data etc. This must be written by inventor him/herself.

After IPO receives your record of invention, IP committee will do a detailed interview with you to learn more about your work. We will then refer it to the intellectual Property Committee for consideration.
The Intellectual Property Committee decides whether to protect your invention by filling a patent application under Kyoto University’s intellectual property rule.
We will send you a notice of result after the evaluation.
We need 2 to 4 weeks for consideration.
