Investigating, creating, protecting, and commercializing research and intellectual property (IP) is a means to benefit the University, the research and academic environment, and the State of Texas and its residents, as well as researchers and business partners.
The process for developing and moving a new technology out of the University and into a commercial product requires input from both intellectual property (IP) and business professionals. This process is iterative, and success requires the creator’s involvement well beyond the lab or workstation.
The process of investing begins with selecting a technology of interest:
- Browse available technologies that are ready for commercial development.
- Review the different types of agreements, such as non-disclosure and intellectual property license agreements.
Other agreements, such as sponsored research agreements, grant agreements, or memoranda of understanding may have provisions in them that have to do with intellectual property, and the Office of Technology Commercialization should be consulted on those provisions.
