Office of Research & Technology Commercialization – Technology offices, small business development, and entrepreneurship centers are the backbone of a university’s economic development.

Each technology is rated and compared across several parameters, such as global R&D foot print, year of impact, global IP patenting activity, private and public funding, current and emerging applications, potential adoption rate, market potential, and so on.
