BIOTECHNOLOGY AREA

Tecnologico de Monterrey develops research through its national schools, resulting in innovations that have an impact in different areas, thanks to the targeted efforts of its focus groups. Once the strategies of intellectual and commercial protection are defined, these innovations are protected by the OTT Network, and also guides the client on how to follow them.

 

One the strategies that Tecnologico de Monterrey defines for the commercialization of its intellectual property is technological licensing, which is promoted through an Express Licensing and Commercial Portfolio.

 

The technologies that are  offered through the Express Licensing, have the objective to stimulate the creation of Technology-based companies with innovative business models, as well as contributing to the development of the ecosystem of technological entrepreneurship in our country.  These fast licensing innovations, have an established cost and where one o more licensees can participate.

 

The technologies that are offered through the Commercial Portfolio, are characterized by being innovations that have an advanced degree of maturity and with intellectual property protection in Mexico and/or internationally. To acquire the license of one (or several) of these technologies, a negotation process is carried out with the National OTT.
