Commercialization of MIT Technology
Thursday, January 27, 2022 at 1:00pm to 2:30pmVirtual Event
Have you ever wondered how technology that’s developed in universities and other academic institutions gets translated into a product to benefit the public? This process is known as technology transfer, and research organizations all over the world utilize teams of tech transfer professionals to evaluate new inventions, protect intellectual property through a patenting process, and license the technology to third parties, such as start-up companies or corporations, for further investment in development and commercialization.
At MIT, the Technology Licensing Office (TLO) supports MIT inventors throughout this process and plays a vital role in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
You'll hear from Technology Licensing Officers Lauren C. Foster and Deirdre Zammit and learn the strategic approach MIT takes to move innovations from the research bench to the marketplace.
