The first step to disclosing an invention is to complete a Report of Invention (ROI) form. A revised ROI form is now available online here: https://www.mcgill.ca/research/researchers/ip/reporting. The form was updated to address changing conditions concerning software and issues of copyright. The format remains similar to the previous version, but provides McGill’s inventors with greater flexibility in describing their technology and identifying their collaborators.
