Upcoming Event

Patents and Pizza: US Patent & Trademark Office HighTech Patent Examiners


UC San Diego Innovation Calendar



9500 Gilman Drive


With a top-ranked engineering school, UC San Diego is a leader in innovation. Our researchers continue to create and reshape the global technology landscape. An important aspect of innovating is also protecting and commercializing intellectual property (IP) for the benefit of our community. UC San Diego Office of Innovation and Commercialization (OIC) partners with campus researchers to protect and commercialize IP and promote the formation of new startup companies.   
Please join us as we host the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) during their visits to universities and high tech corporations to learn first-hand about research in emerging technology and innovation. You will have an opportunity to have an informal dialogue with a group of patent examiners who work with patent applications in the general area of computer networks and multiplex technologies.
