Reporting an Invention
The first step to disclosing an invention is to complete a Report of invention (ROI) form. It may then be submitted electronically, by fax or sent by confidential mail to the OSR Commercialization Officer identified for the Faculty, or directly to the Commercialization Team.
Before the OSR can begin the evaluation process, the form must be complete, signed and dated by all inventors, and all affiliations must be noted. Be sure to include as much information on the invention and on potential co-inventors as possible. In addition to McGill researchers, McGill students, and in some cases technicians, may also report inventions.
