Technology Accelerator for Commercialization

The University of Cincinnati Technology Accelerator for Commercialization ("UCTAC"), acts as commercialization and technology transfer office of the University of Cincinnati. UCTAC seeks partners from the private sector to commercialize the technology derived from patent rights, copyrights and other intellectual property rights of inventions and technical creations made at the University. As well has deployed certain competitive funding for the development of technologies to prepare them to be the basis for a startup company.

Researchers who are interested in protecting their inventions or thinking about starting a company should contact the UCTAC as early as possible. The Accelerator can assist you in, among other things, determining whether your invention is patentable, with filing invention disclosures, with applying for patents and copyrights, and with preparing to start a company.
