  • Increase funding for your lab, department and college
  • Qualify for industry and federal grants, such as SBIR funds
  • Make your research more attractive for future funding

Most importantly, you can increase your impact and contribute to making a better world.

Why is it essential for UA faculty and researchers to talk to TLA about their research and inventions?

"It's great to contact them as soon as you think that you might even have a concept that could be a patent or an invention... TLA people really help the inventor through that process."
