Ready-to-Sign Licensing Program

The goal of this program is to facilitate rapid licensing and the transfer of University intellectual property. Standard terms and conditions have already been determined for each of the 120+ technologies in the program, as represented in the linked agreements which are "ready-to-sign." The terms reflected in ready-to-sign agreements are only available to qualified parties who complete the required information, sign, and return the agreement without modification to the Office of Technology Management. 

Encouraging Economic Development in Illinois

For licenses to patented technologies, if you will be developing or producing products in Illinois, we will waive the license fee that is due at the effective date. The products must be based on technology licensed from the University under this program. To qualify, on Part 1 of the license indicate the Illinois address where you will be developing or making these products.
