If you have an idea you would like to discuss with our office or are interested in patenting a disclosure, please call 617-253-6966 to set up an appointment with a Technology Licensing Officer. Our receptionist can connect you with the Licensing Officer who manages your subject area. We look forward to hearing from you! Please keep in mind that our office only manages disclosures from MIT faculty, staff and students. We are unable to help with the patenting or development of ideas of inventors outside of the MIT community, but we do wish you all the best in the development of your invention.
