Research Commercialization Assistance that Builds Intellectual Property

The University of Texas at San Antonio is committed to investigating, creating, protecting and commercializing research and intellectual property as a means to benefit the University, the research environment, the academic environment, and for the general benefit of the State of Texas and its residents.

The Office of Commercialization and Innovation works with UTSA faculty to efficiently and effectively facilitate technology transfer, commercialization, and assist the Office of Sponsored Project Administration with university-industry partnerships. Through OCI, the university provides intellectual property management and licensing, proof-of-concept development, new venture incubation, entrepreneurial training, and policies and procedures that accelerate and ease the transition of intellectual property from the university to industry.
