dc.descriptionJohn Calvert’s responsibility as the Senior Advisor of the Office of Innovation Development is to assist and advise the Associate Commissioner for Innovation Development on ways to increase the USPTO presence in the independent inventor, small business and entrepreneurial communities. Mr. Calvert is directly responsible for pro bono initiatives and the independent inventor/small business Ombudsman program prescribed in the America Invents Act. Prior to be named Senior Advisor, John was Administrator for the Inventor Assistance Program, which included inventor outreach, small business outreach and university outreach initiatives. The USPTO made outreach and education a high priority due to the increased interest in intellectual property both by business and education. Mr. Calvert expanded the Inventor Assistance Program to include educational initiatives for students, inventors and small businesses and has created inventor assistance through pro bono and pro se initiatives both inside the USPTO and through working with universities and Bar organizations. John graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Textile Technology in May 1971. He worked for 13 years in the textile industry prior to returning to N.C. State University to pursue a Master of Science Degree in Textile Management. In February of 1990, John joined the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as an examiner specializing in textile technology. John became a Primary Examiner in 1995 and a Supervisory Patent Examiner in 1998. John was responsible for supervising as many as 25 examiners in the areas of textile technology and absorbent products. He also served as Acting Director for the Office of Independent Inventor Programs. He has worked on various details and work assignments during his career at the USPTO. Mr. Calvert received the Department of Commerce Bronze Medal for superior Federal service and the United States Patent and Trademark Office Exceptional Career Award.
