Thank you for your interest in investing in CSU's technologies. CSU offers a large portfolio of issued patents and applications in prosecution that may fit your technological need. CSU's goal is to develop and offer these technologies to industry that can further develop them as commercial products. The revenue from sale of these products is shared by the university and industry partner. CSU will share its portion of royalties with the inventor, research programs, and the university.
Although transferring existing technologies from the University to industry is most often accomplished through a licensing agreement between a company and the University, the University can be flexible in offering a number of other options to make rights to our technologies available to industry partners, such as material transfer agreements (link to form), and option agreements, or variations of such. A few licensable technologies are highlighted under Available Technologies. More complete descriptions may be provided upon request, under the privileges of a Mutual Non Disclosure agreement / One-way Non Disclosure Agreement to protect any confidential materials that have not been publicly disclosed.
If the University does not currently have available a licensable technology solution that meets your needs, you may wish to consider sponsoring University research through a Sponsored Research Agreement. A Sponsored Research Agreement may present a viable option for companies interested in obtaining industry-focused research into groundbreaking technology while realizing substantial cost benefits.
