Technology Transfer

Innovation in Action


SIU’s Office of Technology Transfer works with SIU faculty, students, and staff to protect and commercialize intellectual property. From exploring the market potential of an invention to negotiating licensing agreements with industry partners, we work to turn SIU innovations into global difference-makers.

SIU Carbondale plays an integral role in driving economic growth in southern and central Illinois, contributing $2.3 billion in annual economic activity to the state. In 2015, SIU was designated as an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
