Establishing a Chapter

The National Academy of Inventors®

Universities and non-profit research institutions are invited to become Member Institutions of the National Academy of Inventors® and form local chapters to recognize and encourage their community of inventors.

Individual inventors may only join the National Academy of Inventors® through their local chapter. To join your institution's chapter, you must be a member of your institution's academic community (includes faculty, staff, alumni and affiliates) and have a patent issued from the USPTO.
