Intellectual Property

With research comes discovery, and with discovery comes market opportunities. Unlike in more traditional technology transfer models, Notre Dame does not license its technologies soon after disclosure. Rather, all of our technologies go through an intense value-adding process that de-risks, develops and validates its technologies. Those technologies that successfully emerge from this program are much further along the commercialization process than they were when initially disclosed. Only when a technology is truly ready for the market and the market has validated that it needs that technology do we begin looking for a licensing partner. Let our Office of Corporate Relations introduce you to the exciting market opportunities discovered here at Notre Dame.
