The Evaluation Page 

Researchers (you) work with Professionals in the TTO to understand the market readiness, as well as novelty and usefulness of the technology.  

First, TTO Professionals examine if there is clear rights and title to the invention, and whether or not we can formulate claims.

Second, we form an evaluation team based on your suggestions.  We will evaluate your invention for:

  • Is it marketable? (Will someone buy it?, Is the market large enough to sustain investment?)

  • Is it patentable? (Does an existing patent or published article exist? Will a patent examiner determine it to be new, useful and not obvious?)
