Innovations and patents

Please be sure that the content of your paper does not include an invention which might be subject of a patent and/or an industrial design application. If it does, we strongly encourage you to fill out the invention disclosure form via the inventor portal. Please keep in your mind that the TU Delft patent procedure does not interfere with your publishing schedule. The IP department  may need approximately 8 weeks to evaluate, prepare a patent application and submit it, after that you are free to publish your papers. Please do not hesitate to contact for further information.
