The Wyoming Technology Transfer and Research Products Center (RPC) secures intellectual property protection on technologies invented or developed at the University of Wyoming and markets these technologies to companies (i.e. find a licensee for them) in return for royalties and other remuneration. Occasionally, faculty members desire to start his/her own company based on the new technology. In this case the RPC office would be responsible for spinning out the technology from the university to the faculty member’s company. Follow the links below to learn more about the process, your responsibility, and services available to assist you.
