For Industry

Many diverse and exciting technologies are licensed through our office. We generally avoid posting lists of available technologies. We find that establishing relationships with interested companies first and then suggesting new technologies that may be of interest is the best way of successfully transferring inventions to industry. We invite you to contact one of our case managers who covers your industry to discuss your interests.

Typically a case manager will discuss in general terms the technology that may be of interest and then seek to complete a non-disclosure agreement so that you may more closely evaluate specific technical aspects of the invention. After evaluation we will negotiate a license.

If you have a particular area of research you would like to have explored, we can often arrange for a professor in the appropriate area of expertise to perform sponsored research. For more information, please look at our sponsored research guidelines. Sample terms for sponsored research can be found in our standard sponsored research agreement. Sample terms for sponsored services can be found in our sponsored services agreement.
