Office of Technology Commercialization
Texas A&M Technology Commercialization’s mission is to encourage broad practical application of System research for public benefit; to encourage and assist those associated with the System in the protection, licensing and commercialization of their discoveries; to ensure the equitable distribution of royalties and other monetary benefits resulting from the commercial application of intellectual property; and to see that commercialization activities benefit the research, education and outreach missions of the System into the future.
The TTC 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. TTC 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 TTC 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 1100+ license agreements have been executed since the TTC was established in 1992.
