By fostering campus-wide innovative intellectual, research and creative outputs, the TTO aims at supporting researchers and inventors in their research growth and societal impact.
A spin-off is a technology-based company formed to commercialize inventions made at the University and protected by intellectual property rights that are owned by AUC. Inventors may lead or participate in a spin-off in a variety of ways. AUC’s Technology Transfer Office (TTO) provides support for different aspects of forming a spinoff company. If you are an AUC researcher and interested in learning about how your AUC innovation can possibly be commercialized though a spin-off, reach out to the Technology Transfer Office who can offer the necessary advice.
