Intellectual Property & Technology Transfer

Kutztown University offers Technology Transfer and Commercialization services for faculty, students and staff of the University through a cooperative effort with the State System office and the Penn State Research Foundation.

Technology transfer is the process of transferring scientific findings from one organization to another for the purpose of further development and commercialization. The process typically includes:

  • Identifying new technologies
  • Protecting technologies through patents and copyrights
  • Forming development and commercialization strategies such as marketing and licensing to existing private sector companies

Visit the PASSHE Technology Transfer and Commercialization website for guidelines, presentations, forms, faculty technology transfer stories and much more.
