Technology Transfer Office 


The Technology Transfer Office works with startup and established businesses to move new technologies developed at Ohio University from the laboratory to the marketplace, for the benefit of society. 

The staff is skilled at identifying the market potential for faculty inventions, pursuing U.S. and international patent protection, securing industry partners that can commercialize university innovations, and providing business assistance for early-stage faculty startup companies.

Ohio University ranks first among Ohio institutions of higher education for research licensing revenue, with faculty inventions generating $8.6 million during fiscal year 2011. 

The university also ranks fourth in the nation after Princeton University, Northwestern University, and New York University for return on investment in research. The institution reported a 29.7 percent return on investment on $30.9 million in research expenditures in fiscal year 2011.
