Technology Transfer

Technology Transfer is the process of transforming knowledge and discoveries from the laboratory to the public sector.  In a university environment, this transfer takes many forms, including entrepreneurial activities underpinned by a strong tradition and a history of research that has revolutionized health care.

The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF), on behalf of Clemson University, transfers technology through licensing of University intellectual property. CURF is a nonprofit corporation that facilitates the transfer to the private sector for commercial development and societal benefit. The mission of CURF is to commercialize the intellectual property of Clemson University through technology transfer, licensing agreements and new venture formations.

The foundation works directly with the Clemson University research community, including the bioengineering department faculty, students and staff, to foster invention, manage intellectual property created from research, and promote Clemson technology to industry members in order to bridge the emerging bioengineering innovations to the marketplace. CURF also acts as a resource to industry to identify and license new innovations, to access Clemson University research resources, and to support start-up activities.

Technologies currently available for licensing are categorized according to the Clemson Department of Bioengineering research areas. To see technologies available for licensing from other departments across the Clemson University research community, visit
