Commercialization & Tech Transfer
Georgia Tech is a globally recognized research institution with a comprehensive portfolio of innovations that have been successfully commercialized through licensing of research to companies and entrepreneurs. Do you have a great concept that addresses a market need or solves a business challenge, but don’t know how to find the technology to power your idea? Or are you an entrepreneur who wants to find a commercial strategy for an exciting technology coming out of a research lab?
If you’re looking to commercialize Tech research, connect with the Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC), which licenses all of the intellectual property developed at the Institute. Through technology transfer, GTRC ensures that the Institute maintains its strong partnerships with the public and private sectors to assure that the results of research are widely disseminated. Research commercialization has led to the formation of several successful companies, including Urjanet, a utility data management company, and RideCell, an automated fleet management technology firm. For more information, visit the Office of Industry Engagement where you’ll see more than a dozen research technology categories, including advanced materials, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and sensors.
To see how you can tap into Georgia Tech’s portfolio of available technologies, email Terry Bray, director of technology licensing in the Office of Industry Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Office of Industry Engagement also is a conduit to programs across Georgia Tech that connect research activities with business and industry. For example, the Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP) program works with manufacturing clients to help them increase competitiveness, and taps into our research to meet those objectives.
