Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property Office

The University of Cincinnati Intellectual Property Office ("UCIPO"), acts as the technology transfer division of the University of Cincinnati. The UCIPO seeks partners from the private sector to commercialize the technology derived from patent rights, copyrights and other intellectual property rights of inventions and technical creations made at the University.

Researchers who are interested in protecting their inventions should contact the UCIPO as early as possible. The Office can assist you in determining whether your invention is patentable, with filing invention disclosures, and with applying for patents and copyrights. More information can be found at:
