Licensing and Confidentiality
The TTO office operates to help you, through its activities and services, by having our AUC technologies available for licensing. Through this, we create a link between the industry and university, and achieve our objective of benefiting the public.
It is our hope that you, as a company, group, or individual, seek our help and guidance to a variety of ground-breaking technology solutions.

When dealing, licensing, and contracting with companies, it crucial that there is a confidentiality agreement for the benefit of the company as well as the university. The main purpose of the agreement is to ensure that the contracting party does not pass on to third parties or disseminate relevant information to in-house staff outside those directly involved in the project. Confidentiality between the university and your company is a means in which both parties are guaranteed the security of the project, the protection of the process and agreement, and is made to assure the safety of both entities.
