Commercialization of University Technology: Innovation, Tech Transfer and Licensing

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Building 3, 3-133
33 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

Technology transfer is the movement of knowledge and discoveries to the general public. This transfer is generally affected by means of IP licensing agreements (contracts) between universities and private companies.

For MIT, however, technology transfer refers to the formal licensing of technology to third parties, managed and administered by the TLO.

Jack Turner and Lauren Foster will walk you through the commercialization process, patenting decisions, and the MIT policies when it comes to technology transfer. 

This session is part of the Intellectual Property Lunch and Learn Series co-sponsored by the MIT Libraries and the Technology Licensing Office. 

Lunch will be served between 11:30 - 12:30 PM, which will then be followed by a complementing session on The Engine and Early Stage Venture Fundraising.
