Technology disclosure process serves the purpose of informing Skoltech and, specifically, the Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO) staff of your newly created result of intellectual activity. The technology should be disclosed to the KTO@Skoltech when something new and useful has been conceived or developed, or when unusual, unexpected or unobvious research results have been achieved and can be potentially used for the benefit of the general public.
The Skoltech Knowledge Transfer Office reviews all Technology Disclosure Forms as they are received from members of the Skoltech community. Where appropriate, the KTO endeavors to protect and license Skoltech owned intellectual property to industry for further development and commercialization. Any royalties derived from any such license are shared with the inventors (authors of inventions) in accordance with Skoltech IP policy.
