Georgia Tech continually seeks to advance the global competitiveness of Georgia and the nation through commercialization of innovative technologies. Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC) embraces the spirit of entrepreneurship as a means to bring Georgia Tech technologies, discoveries, and inventions into the marketplace. Through technology transfer, GTRC ensures that the university’s intellectual endeavors benefit society and make an impact in the world.

Georgia Tech’s technology commercialization and industry sponsored research efforts are supported by the Office of Industry Engagement, which seeks novel contracting and licensing approaches to encourage innovation, advance knowledge, serve the public interest, and promote industry/university collaborations.  The Office of Industry Engagement is composed of three groups:

  • Innovation Commercialization and Translational Research (ICTR)
  • Industry Collaborations and Affiliated Licenses (ICAL)
  • International Contracts and Technology Transfer (ICTT)

These offices promote partnerships with industry, government, and non-profits; help transform Georgia Tech’s breakthrough technologies into products; and spur economic development throughout Georgia and beyond. Together, these groups make Industry Engagement a one-stop shop for anyone interested in pursuing strategic collaborations through sponsored research, international research, licensing, and new venture agreements.
