Participate in a Research Project - 30 minutes - $30 Gift card!

Investigating how local knowledge centers such as the Patent and Trademark Resource Center (PTRCs) influence patent inventing activities of inventors in the region. As the qualative part of our research, we have interviewed many librarians who oversee PTRCs, including Walt Johnson of Hennepin Public Library who you may know, and USPTO officials to learn more about these centers and get insights from their experiences. We want to complement our research with interviews with inventors, who are the users of PTRCs.

We would like to interview any inventors who have experiences of using PTRCs. The interview would most likely be conducted via phone call or Zoom, and we would just like to ask some questions about their experiences at PTRCs. We plan on having the interview to be about 30 minutes and we will be compensating for 30 minutes of their time with $30 worth of Amazon Gift Card.
