Inventor Royalties

NIH inventions are available for licensing. Inventors receive royalties on patented invention or patent application when an invention is licensed to an outside organization. The distribution of NIH license royalties is calculated by a standard NIH 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 inventors leave government employment, they are still entitled to your royalty share. If you have questions, please contact us or contact your royalty coordinator (see below). For additional details, please visit Information for Inventors / Royalty.
