About Wyoming Technology Transfer and Research Products Center

Wyoming Technology Transfer and Research Products Center

The Wyoming Technology Transfer and Research Products Center (RPC) was formally launched on October 1, 1999 as a collaborative effort between the University of Wyoming Research Office and the Wyoming Business Council. The RPC is the technology transfer office for the University of Wyoming. University of Wyoming inventors can get more information on the UW Inventors page about protecting their intellectual property.

Please Note: As of 2021, the RPC has discontinued its independent inventor program previously provided to Wyoming residents. Please go to the Organizations that Support Wyoming Independent Inventors and Entrepreneurs for resources.
