About The Office of Technology Commercialization

About OTD header

Commercializing university research has a powerful impact. Successful start-ups add jobs, licenses create partnerships with global industry leaders, and new insights into areas like healthcare, weather, and oil and gas improve and save lives. 

The Office of Technology Commercialization, part of the Vice President for Research and Partnerships, helps innovation from the sharpest minds at OU transform into world-changing products.

OTC serves as a resource for all faculty, staff, and graduate students interested in exploring the commercialization of intellectual property.

Additionally, new initiatives like the Growth Fund and the Post-Graduate Venture Fellows program allow us to further support campus inventors, as well as enhance the opportunities for the commercialization of university innovation.
