OMAHA, Neb. (January 20, 2016)—Submitting a new invention to UNeMed just got a little easier.
A new feature on UNMC’s mobile app now allows any user to quickly submit an idea to UNeMed. The UNMC app entirely free, and is available on both Apple and Android platforms. UNeMed welcomes all ideas, inventions and discoveries from any UNMC faculty, students and staff.
To submit an idea, open the application, and select the light-bulb icon which is marked as “Ideas.” Your native browser will open, then choose “Submit an Idea to UNEMED” from the drop-down menu at the top of the screen.
Fill out the form fields asking about the idea, your name and email address. It is extremely important to include your name and contact information, or we will not be able to help.
Finally, select the “submit” button.
Once UNeMed receives the idea, we will have an early record about when the idea was conceived and can begin our process of evaluating and protecting the invention. One of our licensing managers will contact you within days to gather additional details and walk you through the remaining process.
If you prefer to submit a higher level of detail about your idea or invention, we recommend using our standard form.
The purpose of the form is to generate a written, dated record of your invention and to provide information from which the patent potential and commercial potential of your invention can be evaluated. The University needs this documentation to comply with most industrial contract requirements and the U.S. federal laws and regulations concerning grants and contracts.
