From the director
Since its founding in 1867, the University of Illinois has earned a reputation of international stature. Our distinguished faculty, outstanding resources, and depth of research disciplines all contribute to a world-class institution.
At the Office of Technology Management, our purpose is to provide responsive, professional services to ensure the results of this research are successfully transferred outside the University to drive economic growth in the State of Illinois and benefit the general public.
This web site provides resources and guidance for our inventors and business partners as well as provides a medium for publicizing technologies that are available for licensing. If we can be of help, do not hesitate to contact our office.
