The mission of the Technology Transfer Office (TTO) is to assist and lead the successful commercialization of innovations created at CWRU. As steward of the intellectual property assets of CWRU, the TTO has resources to protect the rights of both the inventor and the university, and to assess the commercial potential of new discoveries. The TTO also seeks to educate the university faculty, staff and students and the regional community on issues such as intellectual property, standard licensing practices, and the formation of new ventures.
Patent filing is one of the TTO activities.
