Why We Do It

We support the mission of UCF’s President to be “America’s Leading Partnership University®” and to “achieve international prominence in key programs of graduate study and research.” Our faculty are integral to the success of the university. We support our world-class faculty by promoting the progress of their research for the benefit of the university, the community, economic development, and to further advance discovery and innovation. The benefits of licensing university technology to industry partners include paid royalties to the inventor’s college, department and to the inventor; as well as strengthened industry relationships. Industry partnerships can provide opportunities for sponsored research and product development. The Office of Technology Transfer at UCF is uniquely situated in a hub of innovation at Research Park. Our office is surrounded by companies that are world-renowned innovators and leaders and whom are positioned to acquire disruptive technologies.
