Since its founding in 1888, Utah State University has evolved from a small-town college tucked away in the Northern Utah mountains to a thriving research university respected around the world. Students can choose from an array of academic and social opportunities at a university known throughout the world for its intellectual and technological leadership. USU is one of two R1 research universities in Utah.
The office of Technology Transfer Services at Utah State University represents the entire University and derives its strength from USU’s employees and students. It is our desire and our commitment to protect USU’s intellectual property and to develop relevant, practical technologies with industry so that we can appropriately leverage the intellectual, financial and creative assets of Utah State University. If you have any questions about whether your research or idea could be considered protectable intellectual property, please contact our office. Our technology transfer team can help determine what commercialization options may be viable for the technology in question.
Utah State University Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization owned by Utah State University. The mission of the Research Foundation is to create and implement advanced technological solutions that benefit society. The Research Foundation bridges the gap between conceptual research and its development and deployment and offers a unique environment where our R&D customers can conduct large, complex projects or perform sensitive work that is vital to our national security.< Back to All Articles
