Submitting a disclosure of your innovation to UNHI is the first formal step in obtaining proper IP protection and commercializing your innovation. You are strongly encouraged to submit innovation disclosures early in the development process to avoid any potential problems.

Research Proposal (Pre-Disclosure)
Benefits of pre-disclosure include:
- A review of IP databases along with scientific literature and the commercial landscape can reveal related innovations, key industry players, and IP protection status.
- Many research sponsors want to know what the return on their funding investment could look like.
- Addressing IP during the proposal phase helps you consider products or services that might result from a research project and that could be used directly by the public, in addition to more traditional opportunities for publications and data sharing.
- A thorough assessment of intellectual asset opportunities, limitations, and pathways for the translation of research into direct public benefits can help distinguish a competitive proposal during the review process.
