Penn Center for Innovation

PCI is here to support the Penn community

Posted on March 24, 2020 — Jessica Jones Gupta

PCI continues to fully serve the Penn community and work with both its internal and external stakeholders on vital innovation and commercialization activities during this challenging time. Our on-campus offices are currently closed, but the entire PCI team is available and working remotely during normal business hours. All PCI-managed activities, except in-person events and meetings, are operating.

PCI remains fully able to receive invention disclosures and conduct patenting activities, negotiate IP licenses and other types of contracts, provide business development guidance, and promote Penn technologies and new ventures. We will continue to serve as the commercialization hub for the university and as a resource for YOU.

If you need assistance:

  • Contact our Help Desk (or phone line at 215-7IN-VENT from 9am to 4:30pm M-F) and you will be redirected to the appropriate point of contact at PCI
  • If you already have an assigned Technology Licensing Officer, or if you have a question about a case in progress, we encourage you to reach out directly to your TLO at any time.

We hope you and your families are safe and wish you all the best. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
