Filing a Patent Application

Once the decision to support a domestic patent application has been made, the Technology Commercialization Center will send an official request to the exclusive patent office for filing a patent application. Then, the exclusive patent office will draft a specification to file the patent application. The specification fixes the scope of legal protection upon patent registration, making it an important process. The process of drafting the specification, filing patent application, and etc. is conducted through the exclusive patent office.

Registration of establishment of a Patent Right

The decision to grant a patent is made if the patent examiner is not able to find a reason to reject the patent, or after the applicant resolves the reason for rejection. Once the decision to grant a patent has been confirmed, the patent fee must be paid to secure patent right.

Post Management

For up to 4 years upon registration of the patent rignt, the school will pay for the annual fee. Starting from the 5th year, if the patent isn’t being utilized the corresponding patent is abandoned or the annual fee must be paid for by the researching party or research department to maintain the patent.
