NIH iEdison Invention Disclosure Requirement

The National Institutes of Health has issued a new requirement that all invention disclosures, related reports and documents must be submitted electronically using iEdison: Notice Regarding Requirement of Grantees and Contractors to Submit Invention Disclosures, Related Reports and Documents Via iEdison (NOT-OD-15-080).

Previously, NIH only “strongly supported” its use. Please note that all required iEdison submissions that are submitted via fax, mail, drop offs, etc. will not be accepted and will be returned to the submitter by NIH.

Information about how to use Interagency Edison and information about the iEdison system which is managed by NIH and used by more than 30 federal agency offices is available at NIH iEdison Invention Reporting.
