On July 1, 2017, IU’s technology transfer staff were reorganized, moving both the personnel and the technology transfer function from the Indiana University Research and Technology Corp. to the Office of the Vice President for Research. These functions include receiving and vetting invention disclosures, applying for intellectual property protection, marketing technologies and licensing them to established companies and startups. Changes were implemented in an effort to better serve faculty needs, allowing closer alignment and to enhance the ability to leverage university resources and realize efficiencies.
