By reporting inventions and even just talking through your work with a TLA Licensing Manager, you gain access to great opportunities, such as:
- Increased funding for your lab, department and college
- Qualification for industry and federal grants, such as SBIR funds
- Making your research more attractive for future funding
- Increased impact and contributing to a better world.
What you get working with TLA
We want to ensure that you remain focused on your number one priority: your inventive work.
To that end, we set expectations and coach you through the entire commercialization process. It all starts with an invention disclosure and our team of licensing experts is here to guide you every step of the way.
Why is it essential for UArizona faculty, researchers, and staff to talk to TLA about their research and inventions?
"In order to make our ideas into real-world solutions, we have to work with Tech Launch Arizona. Our ideas and intellectual property have to be protected through patents, which allows companies to make money off the ideas, but then that will translate into people being benefitted and new therapies developed and diagnostics being approved and people's lives being saved."
