Resources for Staff

The University of California increasingly structures new and complex research relationships with industry and other partners, and works with industry to transfer the results of University research into the marketplace. This area of the OTT web site has been designed to support the work of UC Contract and Grant Officers, Licensing Associates, Patent Coordinators, and other technology transfer administrators.

More key tools can be found at the Research Policy and Coordination website.
