University and Technology Transfer
- Commercialization: IP generated in universities can be commercialized by means of donating, licensing, selling (of the IP) to industries, or creating a company (start-up and spin off.) This process is called academic technology transfer.
- Organizations which support IP and Technology Transfer
- World Association of Technology Transfer Organization (WATTO) In this internet site you will find a list of links to numerous organizations actively involved in transfer of technology.
