To begin the licensing process, you may first identify a desired technology, or alternatively, you may contact us directly at and we will assist you in identifying technologies which suit your company’s needs. You will then have the opportunity to sign a confidentiality agreement and learn more about the technology.

Once the licensing process is well underway, an agreement will be drafted conforming to common UC patent license terms. At this time you will also be given the option of securing a low-cost, time-limited, letter agreement while negotiations proceed. This time-limited agreement provides you with the commitment that UC Davis will refrain from further marketing of this technology.
