Over the span of a few months, the novel coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to its knees. Besides hospitals and medical professionals, local and global businesses have had to rise to unprecedented challenges. We at ITDO believe that research and innovation, however large or small, may help combat the disease and protect our medical professionals.

Accordingly, with the approval from the senior management, ITDO has allocated additional funding to support the intellectual property registration (i.e., patent, design, etc.) for inventions related to combating the coronavirus. We hope that by expediting the IP application process, our inventions can be quickly commercialized and benefit the society at large.

Thank you for joining us in the fight against the coronavirus. Please submit your inventions to us by complete the invention disclosure form and evaluation form which can be downloaded from the links below:
