Technology Transfer Office
University of Wyoming
The University of Wyoming is dedicated to instruction, research, and the extension
of knowledge to the public. It is the policy of the University to carry out its scholarly
work in an open and free atmosphere, and to publish results obtained therefrom freely.
Research done primarily in anticipation of profit is incompatible with the aims of
the University. However, the University recognizes that patentable inventions and
copyrightable materials are conceived or created during the course of research conducted
by faculty and students using University facilities. These policies and the Technology
Transfer Office have been established to ensure that those inventions and materials
in which the University may have an interest will be utilized in a manner consistent
with the public good, through patent and copyright licenses or otherwise, as well
as to provide service to faculty, students and the citizens of the State of Wyoming
in technology transfer processes.
