Fostering Innovation, Engagement and Public Service
The commercialization landscape has changed dramatically in the years since the birth of academic technology transfer. While corporate licensing remains a pillar to commercializing academic research, fostering local innovation ecosystems through start-up formation has become an equally important pathway. UMass Amherst is committed to growing the economies of western Massachusetts and the rest of the Commonwealth through entrepreneurship. The Technology Transfer Office is here to assist with that effort.
