Office of Research and Scholarship
Inventions result from creating a new and novel technology. Use of inventions creates value. UT Tyler assists faculty, students, and entrepreneurs in working together to investigate uses of technology to create new products and opportunities. One of our primary objectives is to establish long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with inventors, industry partners and investors.
We promote commercialization of technology by:
- Educating, advising and assisting inventors.
- Evaluating the commercial potential of UT Tyler inventions.
- Protecting intellectual property.
- Assisting in the licensing of commercially viable technologies.
- Communicating commercialization opportunities to investors and industry.
The Office of Research and Scholarship assists investigators in ethically and effectively developing and commercializing intellectual property created at UT Tyler, thereby generating income for the university while benefiting researchers, investors, and the community at large.
