Wikipedia’s definition:

Technology transfer is the process of sharing of skills, knowledge, technologies, methods of manufacturing, samples of manufacturing and facilities among governments and other institutions to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users who can then further develop and exploit the technology into new products, processes, applications, materials or services.

    • enforceability
  • Office of Technology Licensing options
    • Accept UF’s right to the technology
    • Waive UF’s right to sponsoring agency or inventor
    • Incomplete disclosure requiring further input
points uf considers when reviewing a new disclosure for patentability any public disclosure

most important things to remember about this presentation
Most important things to remember about this presentation…
  • Faculty service is our #1 priority! Without them we wouldn’t have any technology to transfer so have an open door policy, be responsive and communicate with them regularly!
  • Set expectations to faculty according to your resources….be aware of other resources on campus who can help them if you can’t
  • Use effective time management. Find the right balance on how to divide your time up in a day’s work: Example: 25% new disclosure review, 50% licensing, 25% other (marketing, prosecuting patents, negotiating other agreements, etc.)
