What to Expect:

“To have a great idea, have a lot of them.” – Thomas Edison

Like a great idea, this Intellectual Property workshop starts at the beginning. This three hour workshop is designed to give participants a basic understanding of intellectual property; intellectual property rights and responsibilities; the Bayh-Dole Act and recipient compliance with the Act; and Inventions & Reporting via iEdison. Participants will interact with staff by participating in case studies and asking questions to NIH faculty.

Target Audience:

This workshop is designed for participants who have fewer than two years’ intellectual property experience or are new to Grants Management, Sponsored Program, or Technology Transfer or would like a refresher course.


Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:

  • understand basic concepts and definitions as they relate to inventions, patents, and the Bayh-Dole Act and its compliance requirements;
  • understand basic concepts about the iEdison online reporting system;
  • understand basic Bayh-Dole reporting requirements including Invention Reports, Confirmatory Licenses, Government Support Clauses, and Utilization Reports; and
  • use our core principles of Partnership, Cooperation, and Communication to accomplish our shared goals of advancing science, assisting the public, and complying with federal laws and regulations.
