Inventor's Guide to Technology Commercialization Process at OSU
Broadly speaking, technology transfer is the movement of knowledge and discoveries to the general public. It can occur through publications, educated students entering the workforce, exchanges at conferences, and relationships with industry. For TDC, technology transfer means managing patents and copyrights, licensing them to third parties, facilitating new company formation, promoting good relationships with industry, funding research with commercial potential through our gap funding program, and more recently, helping faculty, staff, and students develop mobile apps through our App Center.
