Intellectual Property Commercialization & Economic Development
The Office of Intellectual Property Commercialization & Economic Development (IPCED) is responsible for protection and commercialization of University research innovations including aerospace sciences, computer sciences, medicine and health sciences, engineering and physical sciences.
Our office will draft, file and prosecute patent applications for inventions. We will work with inventors to define and market technology portfolios of inventions, to promote new business ventures and to build business alliances that will accelerate the transition of inventions to the marketplace.
IPCED is also responsible for drafting and negotiating all of the University's legal intellectual property agreements, such as confidentiality, material transfer and licensing agreements.
