Use this form if you want to share confidential information or discuss an invention outside of BU, especially before a patent application has been filed or while it remains unpublished. This is critical to maintain patent filing rights, especially in most foreign countries. Providing complete, accurate information will help us negotiate a CDA that will facilitate your project and comply with BU policies. See also: Export Control
Once you’ve submitted, we will confirm receipt, review the form, and initiate the CDA process. Please contact email@example.com if you do not receive a confirmation within three (3) business days, or if you have any questions.
