In its broadest sense, technology transfer is the transfer of knowledge, ideas, discoveries and innovations to the public. This happens though publication, student graduation and employment, faculty consulting engagements, participation in scientific meetings, collaboration, and licensing intellectual property. OTTL is dedicated to maximizing Boston College’s impact on the public good through technology transfer.

Companies and organizations seeking access to Boston College researchers and intellectual property should contact OTTL with their interest, or explore our portfolio. OTTL is committed to developing long term, strategic relationships between the University and outside parties which honor the contributions of Boston College researchers while recognizing the challenges inherent in bringing early stage University technologies to market.

Boston College is a signatory to the Nine Points to Consider in Licensing University Technology and brings those principles to the table in its licensing negotiations.
