Office of Technology Development



It is the job of the Technology Development Office (OTD) to successfully transfer new discoveries from the lab to the marketplace. We, in the Tech Licensing office, are dedicated to assissting the employees of USM with new and useful ideas that will enhance and improve our community.

The OTD office should be contacted early on to begin the process and complete all forms. Ideally, the Invention Disclosure Form (IDF) should be executed before any public disclosures are made.

Once the appropriate forms have been completed, send them OTD for circulation and administrative approval. OTD will review and work with the inventor(s) to conduct an assessment and evaluate the development level of the work, market potential, and scope and strength of the IP.
