Commercialization of MIT Technology: Innovation, Tech Transfer, & Licensing

Wednesday, January 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

RSVP / Register

Have you ever wondered how technology that’s developed in universities and other academic institutions gets translated into a product to benefit the public? This process is known as technology transfer, and research organizations all over the world utilize teams of tech transfer professionals to evaluate new inventions, protect intellectual property through a patenting process, and license the technology to third parties, such as start-up companies or corporations, for further investment in development and commercialization.

At MIT, the Technology Licensing Office (TLO) supports MIT inventors throughout this process and plays a vital role in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Come hear from Technology Licensing Officers Lauren Foster and Deirdre Zammit who engage with the MIT community on all these tech transfer activities and learn the strategic approach MIT takes to move innovations from the research bench to the marketplace.

This session is part of the “Intellectual Property Speaker Series” co-sponsored by the Technology Licensing Office and MIT Libraries. Lunch will be provided to attendees of the Intellectual Property Speaker Series events. Please register for the seminar and lunch.


We will also be giving away some branded MIT Libraries and Technology Licensing Office swag to participants who attend any 6 sessions from this series, so please check out our other sessions! http://mit_tlo.eventbrite.com
