MISSION

The mission of the Technology Transfer Office is to assist in developing the intellectual property portfolio and the quantity and quality of faculty research programs of the University of Texas at Arlington.
Environment:
Global competition has changed the environment for research and development such that a large portion of funded research is related to technologies that have commercial value instead of broad based, basic research. Universities must operate in this type of funding environment while maintaining scholarship and education responsibilities.
Goals:
  • Facilitate intellectual property creation, protection, and marketing
  • Facilitate business - university communication at the research level
  • Place UT Arlington in the center of the business idea-research-product roadway
