Funding, tools, and help to move the products of your research toward commercialization. Learn more about resources available to all UArizona innovators.
Asset Development or “AD” is a program that provides funding to help advance early-stage inventions that aren’t yet ready to attract licensees or investors.
When we work with you on an Asset Development plan, we validate an invention's market potential and requirements and ready it for commercialization – whether that be to an existing company or a startup.
The technology has been formally disclosed to TLA
The technology is not yet licensed
Primary inventor is a UArizona employee
If the technology is jointly owned, an agreement exists designating UArizona as the lead institution
It is important to note that asset development projects take place prior to licensing and are designed to prepare inventions and inventing teams for next steps.
