The Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) manages, nurtures and protects University intellectual property with a single-minded goal: to transfer scientific discovery to the marketplace.
NC State is committed to this vital mission, which fosters economic growth and prosperity. Working with industry, the OTT assesses research for potential commercial success, seeks partners who can benefit from the new technology, and develops critical relationships that make the tech transfer process work.
The OTT serves as the first “point of contact” for external partners looking at sponsored-research opportunities. It coordinates industry outreach and provides educational opportunities for students, graduates, faculty, and our partners.
NC State researchers have generated almost 800 U.S. patents. Learn more about our available intellectual property and the process for working with us. Contact the OTT directly at 919-515-7199 with questions concerning NC State research opportunities.
