Industry Engagement and Intellectual Property

The NDSU Business Development Unit and Technology Transfer Office have been combined into the Office of Industry Engagement and Intellectual Property.  This reorganization is part of an effort to maximize the opportunities for industry sponsored research and licensing of intellectual property.  Merging of these units is designed to streamline intellectual property discussions during negotiation of sponsored research agreements and provide continuity for research sponsors interested in licensing technologies developed at NDSU.
