Welcome to Technology Transfer at SIUE!
Research and innovation provide the seeds for future economic growth and community prosperity. SIUE seeks to cultivate research, entrepreneurship, and innovation through the technology licensing and transfer process.
The Office of Research and Projects provides a variety of intellectual property-related services to SIUE researchers, including innovation identification, patent and copyright assessment, patent and copyright protection, and licensing. The mission of SIUE's technology licensing program is to transfer research results to commercial application for public use and benefit, bringing the benefits of discovery to the world. We seek to accomplish this mission by supporting faculty entrepreneurship, fostering university-industry relationships, and assisting in the movement of university inventions to the marketplace. Technology Transfer or Licensing begins with cutting edge research and development on campus. The Office of Research and Projects manages the evaluation of invention disclosures for potential patent or copyright protection and viable licensing.
