I do not understand what you mean here.

If a 3-month detailed report would interfere with writing a patent, the
researcher can submit an abbreviated report saying something like: "A
patent is now being written. When it is filed, in approximately two months,
a more detailed report will be sent." That should satisfy everyone. The
patent application should be written promptly.

If the researcher cannot do things this way, he should seek money from a
venture capitalist instead of a philanthropist.
