AAU, Associations Submit Comments on USPTO's SUCCESS Act of 2018

AAU, along with AAMC, APLU, AUTM, and COGR, submitted comments on the USPTO’s preparation of a study for Congress with data on entrepreneurship and patenting among woman, minorities, and veterans, as required by the Study of Underrepresented Classes Chasing Engineering and Science Success (SUCCESS) Act of 2018. The SUCCESS Act also directs the USPTO to provide Congress with legislative recommendations on how to promote the participation of women, minorities, and veterans in entrepreneurial activities and patenting. In the letter, the associations express their support for the goals of the SUCCESS Act and for the attendant efforts of the USPTO and the SBA as our institutions “seek to advance the numbers of women, minority and veteran scientists within the ranks of recognized inventors.” In August 2018, the associations issued a statement applauding the introduction of the SUCCESS Act.
