What is technology transfer?

Technology transfer is the process of moving technologies from the lab bench into corporate product development.
 
Our goal is to bring the benefits of UMass Amherst research to the public in the form of new products and services.
Resources For
Inventors
Faculty inventors are our most important customers. We have simplified a number of procedures and are making policies more ‘faculty friendly,” and making interactions with faculty more personal.
Resources For
Artists
Authors, composers, artists, sculptors and architects also create valuable works that can benefit the public. We are developing a program that gives advice, guidance and perspective on how to protect and license their works.
Resources For
Companies
We will define product opportunities, identify which are relevant to your business, learn about your products, and consider how our technologies might enhance or expand your business.
