Technology Transfer

Groundbreaking research can result in breathtaking technologies 鈥 but in order to achieve their potential for impact, they must successfully move out of the laboratory and into the hands of those who can use it. This process is known as technology transfer.

麻豆区

The Technology Transfer Office can help 麻豆区鈥檚 inventors make this happen. Our team of Technology Transfer Managers (TTMs) advises researchers from across the 麻豆区 community on all aspects of the technology transfer process. In 2022, our team helped 麻豆区 accomplish the following milestones:

21 New licenses and options granted
123 invention disclosures
15 US patents issued

But issuing patents and granting licenses are only one aspect of technology transfer. There are a number of important steps that are covered before these can happen. The basic steps in the process are:

Disclosing an invention

Reporting an invention disclosure (ROI) is the first step in the process and can be done online via an easy-to-use interface.

Assessing the ROI

This is handled by the technology transfer managers who conduct a thorough analysis of the invention disclosed to validate its commercial potential and it鈥檚 protectable intellectual property content.

Protecting the technology

If an invention has intellectual property that can be protected by patent, plant breeder鈥檚 right, industrial design, utility model, or other similar intellectual property right, then the formal protection mechanisms, such as patent applications, can be made. For more information on patenting, look at this page.

Licensing and commercialization

Intellectual Property can have tremendous market value. It can form the core of a new business entity, or it can be licensed to an established business who can then bring the technology to market in exchange for some financial and non-financial terms. Technology transfer managers negotiate these transactions.

The Technology Transfer team is there to support you in your technology commercialization journey. Have questions about the process? Want to know more before submitting your ROI? Don鈥檛 hesitate to reach out.

Report an Invention

Submitting a report of invention form is a crucial first step which allows our Technology Transfer Managers to assess the commercial potential and possible avenues of IP protection for your Invention.听
