The Technology Transfer Office’s (TTO) purpose is to serve the AUC community, including faculty, staff or students who have a knack for innovation and a potentially creative idea. Our office is here to facilitate the growth, development, and success of new technologies. We support research at all stages and help establish a connection between companies and the commercialization of intellectual property.
The TTO will set up protection strategies for your research and promote development all the way through successful commercialization. AUC encourages an environment where it is safe to innovate and take claim over ones work. TTO fully supports intellectual property to ensure all AUC individuals are justly rewarded for their efforts. In addition, the TTO helps the community gain access to these cutting edge technologies quickly and conveniently, following suite with our university's strategic vision.
By fostering campus-wide intellectual, cultural, and personal development, the TTO hopes to promote the educational excellence within the university, as well as keep researchers and inventors motivated and satisfied to continue having a strong research growth and impact.
