Realize Your Idea

WiSys can help you every step of the way.

Whether we’re finding the funding to take your idea further, assuming the responsibilities of intellectual property protection or helping you commercialize, WiSys has only one goal: to help the Universities of Wisconsin's most promising innovators see their ideas succeed.

​Make your case

WiSys is excited to help all researchers at the Universities of Wisconsin protect their ideas and further their research goals. Before you send in your invention disclosure for analysis, take a look at some of the important things to keep in mind.

Before Disclosing

Tell us your idea

When you are ready to disclose your invention to WiSys head over to the invention disclosure page. It will give you all of the background information you need on the process involved with disclosing to WiSys, as well as a form to formally disclose your invention.

Invention Disclosure

Protect your intellectual property

After you have disclosed to WiSys, take a look over the following pages to learn more about the nuances of patenting and patent law. You can also learn more about the different forms of Intellectual Property that WiSys works with. We are open to working with all disciplines and departments to further their work, and push it forward commercially.

Intellectual Property Protection

Launch your project

Once the intellectual property has been filed, our licensing process takes over. This can take the form of licensing to established companies, or startups. These pages contain the outlines of how both of those processes work.
