Get a Patent: Tales of the Patenting Experience

For NYU Community

Are you curious about the patent process? Do you have an idea you may want to patent? Ever wonder what might be the first step? What can you expect along the way? What does it take to move your idea from inside your head to potentially profitable intellectual property ownership? Our panel, members of the NYU-Tandon community who have experience with the process, will discuss the patenting experience and answer questions from attendees and the moderator.

Professor Michael Knox, Engineer in Residence in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, who has gone through the patent process, and Christopher Snyder responsible for the commercialization of technologies coming out of the NYU-Tandon campus are our panelists. Alexandra Cardinale, a student in the NYU-Tandon Patent Pending Club, is our moderator. Earl Co, computer engineering student and President of Patent Pending @ NYU will say a few words about the club.

This is the first of a three part series, to be given on three consecutive weeks, on the patent process. Upcoming segments will explore whether your idea can be patented, and a streamlined method for searching patents.

This event will be in the Bern Dibner Library on the NYU-Tandon School of Engineering campus. The presentation will take place on Tuesday, February 9 at 4:00pm in LC 433 (located inside the library on the 4th floor).
