    Has your research created new ideas that need to be protected? If so, you have come to the right place. The Office of Technology Transfer assists the university, its faculty, and students, in finding commercialization opportunities for innovations arising from research. Our team of experts works to protect the intellectual property created by the Rice community, while launching these discoveries towards commercial development.

    The links on the left column contain valuable information about intellectual property protection. Please be sure that you are familiar with the Rice Intellectual Property Policy.

    If you have an idea or a new discovery that you believe could lead to a commercial process or product, please contact us for a consultation. We can work with you and develop a strategy for protecting intellectual property rights that does not delay your plans for publication.
