Universities had always known the value of the intellectual
activities at their institutions. The intellectual work of the faculty and
researchers in universities had been locked up in departments or in the
various offices of their professors.
Over the last 5 years, organizations have been developed on
campus of large universities to deal with the intellectual property of the
university and create value for the institution and their inventors. These
organizations are typically called Technology Transfer Offices. The role of
TTO is to identify IP within the university, ensure proper protection of it
through patent, trademark and copyright filing, and find outside parties
interested in licensing or acquiring the technology.
Emerging Medical Solutions has experience working with TTOs
and can help TTOs find suitable partners for their technologies.
