Technology to LicenseVenture CapitalOther ResourcesFAQs

CVIP welcomes established companies and start-ups that wish to license the University of Massachusetts-Amherst’s technologies. We have a complete database of available technologies for your perusal. CVIP is responsible for managing all aspects of licensing technologies and we can help you identify which technology may best fit your needs.

If there is a particular technology you are interested in learning more about we can prepare a Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) for signature and once executed, we can arrange to get additional information to you.

Once you have determined you are interested in a particular technology, we can move directly to licensing negotiations or take the intermediate step of an Option Agreement. UMass grants both exclusive and non-exclusive licenses.

If you are interested in a technology that is already licensed, we can assist by expediting agreements between you and the company that already licenses the technology from the University.

Additionally, if there is a particular scientific area that you would like to sponsor a directed level of R&D that could generate a potential invention, we can guide you toward establishing an industry sponsored research agreement. We can discuss inventorship and intellectual property issues.

We would be happy to discuss all possible options with you. We invite you to contact us to discuss various opportunities. We can be reached at (413) 545-3606 or cvip@research.umass.edu.
