In addition to publications, presentations, and graduate theses, which communicate research findings to scientific colleagues throughout the world, research may also result in an invention. Inventions and their commercialization have always been a significant component of this country’s economic growth. Technology is critical to our international competitiveness and economic health. As a result, a large number of state and federal laws have been developed to facilitate this process and increase the rate at which valuable inventions move from the laboratory into the marketplace. The policies below govern this process at the University of Connecticut.
