THE OFFICE OF TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER

The Office of Technology Transfer identifies promising intellectual property arising from research conducted at North Carolina A&T. We connect industrial and commercial partners with N.C. A&T expertise, new technologies, and opportunities for continuing development while creating technology-driven businesses. That work translates into economic benefits in our regional and state economies, including creation of startup and spin-off companies and jobs associated with those enterprises.

The office manages the university’s intellectual property portfolio and works directly with faculty, staff and students to build a pipeline of novel products and concepts with commercial value. It also works with government agencies, including patent and trademark offices, to protect IP innovations and ultimately license that intellectual property for commercial development.
