Welcome to IDEA, the new secure online portal for UT faculty, staff, and students to submit invention disclosures to the UT Research Foundation. When you submit your invention disclosure, you are notifying UT and UTRF that you have discovered or invented something with the potential to become a successful commercial product. Your invention disclosure is the first step in the technology transfer process.
Once submitted, your disclosure will be electronically approved by your Chair, Dean, and local Research Administration Office, and then assigned to a UTRF case manager. For more information about technology transfer at UT, and what to expect when working with UTRF, please visit our website at http://utrf.tennessee.edu
Thanks, and we look forward to working with you!
