Stanford’s licensing activities involve inventions, patents, biological materials, software, and copyrightable materials.

By working closely with inventors and industry, Stanford seeks to maximize the value of technology for the future. Technology transfer has become a key concept in national, regional, and global economic development. In the entrepreneurial environment of the Silicon Valley, Stanford University and its Office of Technology Licensing (OTL) have become models for successful technology transfer.
