All employees at OsloMet are required to notify about inventions. According to the Copyright Act, in some cases computer programs and databases may also be subject to the notification obligation.

The notification obligation is met by filling out a DOFI form (Disclosure of Invention). The VIE team at OsloMet assists in completing the form if needed.
