Do you have work that you feel may solve a significant problem and/or has significant commercial value?
As a public institution, The Texas A&M University System requires disclosure of certain developments of all employees so the benefit derived from these developments can be used to further A&M's educational mission. These ideas are formally disclosed to the Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) using Forms for Inventors, including the Disclosure of Invention Form, which can be found on the OTC website. Once the idea is disclosed to the OTC, the OTC will begin a process to evaluate the idea for its commercial potential.
