Reporting inventions in iEdison can be a clunky, time-sucking task that is riddled with compliance hurdles, error notifications and reporting requirements. Many universities have made it policy and procedure to report ALL inventions into iEdison upon disclosure to the TTO. But that’s not necessary or even wise to do. Not all inventions are backed by federal funds, and not all disclosures can be fully vetted to meet the subject invention requirement. This causes major strife for the reporting officer or patent coordinator because — as TTO staff know all too well — correcting reporting errors is an absolute nightmare in iEdison.

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics, in partnership with iEdison expert Tyson Benson, associate with Bejin Beinemam, has created this critically important compliance webinar.

Saving Time and Increasing Productivity with iEdison: Reassessing the Subject Invention Requirement and Minimizing Reporting Errors

Mr. Benson will focus on teaching you how to save time with iEdison by providing an in-depth view of what a subject invention is and what really needs to be reported. 

Here’s a brief look at what he’ll cover:

  • An in-depth overview of the regulations related to subject inventions
  • How to determine what is a subject invention
  • Review of relevant case law related to subject inventions
  • How to implement time-saving strategies in your technology transfer office
  • Avoiding errors and minimizing correction hassles
