With over 1,000 novel technologies to choose from, and ample research capabilities, we encourage you to consider the immeasurable benefits of working with our inventors and licensing one of the groundbreaking technologies developed at UC Davis.

Getting Started with the Licensing Process

To begin the licensing process, you may first identify a desired technology, or alternatively, you may contact us directly at [email protected] and we will assist you in identifying technologies that suit your company’s needs. Our intellectual property officers are experts in their designated fields and are available to help you find and proceed with acquiring new cutting edge technologies. When electing to license a UC Davis technology, you will undoubtedly benefit from the knowledge and expertise of our office as they assist you through the licensing process.

Initiating an Agreement

When electing to license a UC Davis technology, you will have the opportunity to sign a confidentiality agreement, learn more about the technology, and discuss plans for licensing and commercialization. Once the licensing process is 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.
