Technology Transfer at Wayne State

The Wayne State University Technology Commercialization Office (TC Office) is tasked with enhancing the likelihood that inventions developed at WSU are properly protected and practically applied. WSU researchers disclose new technology to the TC Office preferably well before any public disclosure. The TC Office works to evaluate disclosed technology in a timely fashion in order to assign resources for patenting and marketing of such inventions.

The TC Office aims to inspire the practical application of WSU technology, with goals of enhanced inventor recognition, industry support and collaboration, and possible monetary compensation for inventors and the university in the form of license revenues.
