Office of Technology Development
The Office of Technology Development (OTD) is responsible for campus intellectual property issues. The OTD works with campus faculty, staff, and students to identify, protect, and license intellectual property (such as inventions and original works of authorship) that has potential for commercial application or broader use outside the university. The OTD also helps to ensure equity and clarity of roles and responsibilities in relationships with companies and other external organizations. The OTD is particularly interested in working with companies who can develop new technology emerging from UAlbany research to grow their businesses in New York State. The OTD negotiates Confidential Disclosure Agreements, Material Transfer Agreements, Option Agreements, License Agreements and other agreements related to intellectual property.
