OTL (Office of Technology Licensing)

Knowledge and discoveries from Stanford can be transferred outside of the University to benefit the general public. When those discoveries take the form of intellectual property, the transfer generally requires formal licensing through Stanford’s Office of Technology and Licensing (OTL). The University policies for disclosing and managing intellectual property depend on whether the intellectual property is a patentable invention, a copyright for software and other creative works, or tangible research property typically biological materials.

Stanford researchers can find detailed information about working with OTL in the Inventor's Guide and the OTL website. OTL has also created a Start-Up Guide for Stanford faculty, staff, and students interested in launching a start-up company based on intellectual property that is owned by the University.
