OTC: Building Bridges between Academic Research and Business Since 1992
The Texas A&M University System's Office of Technology Commercialization is Industry's Connection to the A&M System. The OTC provides the link between the laboratories where innovative new technologies are being developed and industry partners that will bring them to fruition as a product.
The OTC protects these new innovations, developed by A&M System researchers, through patents and copyrights and seeks to transfer the intellectual property to industry by royalty-bearing license agreements for commercial products that result in economic development and public benefit.
The OTC interacts with hundreds of companies each year as it seeks to find commercial partners to commercialize A&M System innovations. As a result, more than 700 license agreements have been executed since the OTC was established in 1992.
We look forward to working with you in commercializing new A&M system technologies.
