For Inventors

Researchers participate in the technology transfer process for a variety of reasons. For some, it is personally satisfying and rewarding to bring a product or service to market. Others are motivated by making society a better place to live. Some want to achieve recognition and financial rewards, while others enjoy generating additional lab or department funding.
