If You're a Researcher, You're an Inventor

Tech Launch Arizona
January 22, 2018

Through your research you develop knowledge that can change the world.

Tech Launch Arizona – the UA office dedicated to commercializing inventions stemming from research – provides fully-paid services to help our faculty, researchers and staff define, report and protect your inventions, be they compounds, devices, algorithms, and everything in between.

Did you know you can increase the impact of your work through inventorship? By reporting the inventions that stem from your research*, you have the opportunity to:

  • 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 research contracts contain language regarding reporting inventions. TLA can help you understand your requirements.

Contact Tech Launch Arizona for a consultation or to discuss the potential for your invention.

  • Discussions are completely confidential.
  • Your ideas are protected.
  • We help you fulfill all your reporting requirements.
  • You get recognition and create impact.

Start the conversation: Contact the Licensing Manager below most closely associated with your unit, or contact Doug Hockstad, TLA Assistant Vice President.

We look forward to hearing from you! #makeithappen
