Technology Transfer at New York University

The mission of the NYU Office of Industrial Liaison is to promote the commercial development of NYU technologies from its Medical Center and Washington Square campuses into products to benefit the public, while providing resources to the University to support its research, education, and patient care missions. The Office also facilitates research collaborations between NYU researchers and industry on projects of mutual interest.  

The Office actively seeks commercial partners to develop NYU technologies, and works to establish mutually beneficial long-term relationships. Almost 60% of NYU patents have been licensed to companies for development and commercialization. Over the past five years, NYU has ranked first among all U.S. universities in income from technology licensing, which is plowed back into further research. NYU actively promotes entrepreneurship with more than 70 companies created based on NYU technologies. In the most recent published comparative data on technology commercialization activity at U.S. universities, NYU created 87% more new start-up companies per research dollars expended than the national average.

We look forward to working with you.
