Quick Look Assessment- Introduction

The goal of a Quicklook assessment is to get an early indication of commercial interest in an idea, invention, or area of research. The primary benefits of the reports are the potential partners/licensees that can be found. In cases where inventions are not well received by the commercial marketplace, the reports can give early warning signals that the proposed area of research or proposed patent may be a non-starter and further investigation is needed prior to funding either more research or a patent submission.

Follow Quicklook Steps 1-4 to see if your idea might be a good candidate for commercialization.
