Office of Technology Licensing (OTL) receives invention disclosures from Stanford faculty, staff and students. We evaluate these disclosures for their commercial possibilities, and when possible license them to industry. If the inventions are successfully licensed, cash royalties collected by OTL provide funding to the inventors' departments and schools, as well as personal shares for the inventors themselves.

Please check out our freshly printed FY2018 Annual Report to celebrate another successful year and look to the future with us!
