UC’s technology commercialization program takes inventions from the laboratory to the marketplace, benefiting the public by building alliances with industry to create innovative products for the world and to generate new businesses and jobs for California.

Rights to patentable inventions arising from UC research are assigned to the University under the UC Patent Policy. Campus offices (with systemwide assistance) facilitate the commercialization of these inventions by industry partners; the activities of these offices include management of patent application filings, technology marketing, negotiation of licenses and other agreements, and support for UC-affiliated inventors and entrepreneurs. These relationships with industry are also an important source of support for UC’s research and educational enterprise, providing royalty and fee income to the University, encouraging industry sponsorship of research and nurturing an entrepreneurial ecosystem on the campuses.
