The UM Ventures Offices at the University of Maryland’s College Park and Baltimore campuses serve investigators in the technology transfer and commercialization process. We can help you obtain intellectual property protection, increase your research funding through successful partnerships with business, and realize financial gains with royalty and licensing revenues. Our interdisciplinary team is here to guide your technology through the often confusing technology transfer cycle.

If you are a University employee or have used University funds to develop your invention, have developed your invention with the help of government funding, or plan to publish your invention online, in a scientific journal, thesis, or other visible forum - written or oral - disclose your invention to UM Ventures .
