Working with the Technology Transfer Office
Research involving biological agents and/or hazardous materials can sometimes also involve transfer of the physical material and/or intellectual property between various entities. CU's Technology Transfer Office (TTO) can assist you with issues related to intellectual property (IP); patents/ licensing/copyrights/ trademarks for discoveries/inventions/educational materials and software; start-up company development; materials or tissue transfer agreements.
Per UCCS Policy 100-011 only identified individuals may sign these agreements.
