Office of Technology Management

The mission of the RIC Office of Technology Management is to ensure that innovations discovered and developed at RIC are commercialized to their full potential and made widely available to the rehabilitation community, with the ultimate goal of Advancing Human Ability™.

The Office of Technology Management oversees all activities relating to new technologies originating at RIC, from initial invention disclosures through patenting, marketing, and commercialization. Working directly with inventors, OTM helps define the most efficient route to commercialization, which may involve licensing of technology to existing companies or creation of new RIC spinout companies.
