Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer

The Texas Tech University System defines intellectual property as, “inventions, innovations, discoveries, improvements, biological materials, proprietary materials, plants, copyrightable works, trademarks, and tangible research property.” The TTUS Office of Research and Commercialization provides researchers with assistance in protecting intellectual property and in developing and commercializing inventions.

Faculty, staff and students are required to disclose all intellectual property to the Office of Research and Commercialization. If you need to make a disclosure or if you would like more information about this process, please contact ASU’s Office of Sponsored Projects.

The TTUS statement on intellectual property is located in Chapter 10 of the Regents’ Rules. Angelo State University’s policy on intellectual property rights is OP 56.10.
