Did I Invent Something?


Did I Invent Something?

Date: Thursday, November 19, 2015     

Time: 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm


 Bob MacWright, Director of the Technology Transfer Office


Making an invention is as simple as a thought; it is

“formation in the mind of the inventor of a definite and permanent idea

of the complete and operative invention.”


It is too easy to dismiss the beginnings of such thoughts!   This workshop will explain how to initiate, flesh out and seize on such thoughts, as they may arise in your UMass research, or in your kitchen or garage at home. 

It will also describe how such thoughts can lead to patents, products and royalties, and how they can have impact on the lives of people everywhere.
