Technology Transfer and Licensing
Services Offered for Academic Institutions

D. Glass Associates (DGA) can assist academic institutions (universities, medical centers and research institutions) that are not large enough to maintain full-time tech transfer staff, by handling many tech transfer functions on a part-time basis. We can also help licensing offices that are temporarily shorthanded due to staff turnover, maternity/paternity leave, etc. in assessing, marketing and licensing inventions and in negotiating a variety of tech transfer agreements.

DGA can help your institution in a number of ways. We can arrange to spend an agreed-upon number of hours a week working in your offices, handling a variety of ongoing tech transfer functions, being available onsite to your investigators and other staff. Alternatively, we could handle project-by-project work on an as-needed basis, working from your office or ours. DGA is also available for invention assessments and limited patentability searches, commercialization assessments, and special projects.
