  • Please note: All information provided will be treated confidentially.


One of the requirements for a patent is novelty. It is therefore important that any patentable idea is discussed with R&V or Business Generator, before it is made public through publication, including presentations, posters, and submitted manuscripts. When the idea is shared early, any delays in publishing can remain to the minimum.
