The acronym is I.D.E.A. It stands for “Invention Disclosure Enterprise Application,” and it is a just announced electronic method for faculty and staff at the University of Tennessee (UT) to electronically submit invention disclosures.
Like any portal, it is available at any hour of the day or night via a Windows or Apple computer, mobile phone or tablet. The sponsoring UT Research Foundation notes that I.D.E.A. is linked automatically to the individual’s UT netID to facilitate the ease of submission.
There’s an online training session scheduled for Monday. Click here for more information.
