Great ideas are created by anyone, anywhere. Are you a Jefferson faculty, staff or student with a new idea? We want to hear about it and help you bring it to reality.  Fill out this quick questionnaire to start the conversation!

Invention Disclosure

An Invention Disclosure Form (IDF) is used as the official notification of the creation of an invention provided by the inventor candidate. This form provides important information for the invention review process.


When submitting an idea, there are some general policies to be aware of. The technology commercialization processes are governed by Jefferson's intellectual property-related policies on patents, equity, tangible research property, and copyrights.
