NIH inventions including patented inventions and patent-pending inventions will be published at Federal Register and are available for licensing. Inventors will receive royalties on patented invention or patent application when it is licensed to an outside organization. The distribution of NIH license royalties is calculated by NIH standard formula. No NIH inventor may receive more than $150,000 total in royalty income in a given year. Amounts in excess of this cap are distributed to co-inventors (unless they also cap, in which case the royalties flow back to the Institute or Center). Even if you leave government employment, you are still entitled to your royalty share. If you have questions, please contact us or contact your royalty coordinator (see below). Please see Royalty forms.
