Licenses for Intellectual Property (IP), both patents and copyrights are also granted by the Technology Transfer Office at KIIT TBI. Such licenses are granted to both existing businesses as well as startup or spinout companies to develop relevant products or solutions for the market. Most of these licenses deal with Software / IT tools / AI Algorithms developed by the innovators.
We invite industry experts and consultants to have a look at and explore selected KIIT-TBI IPs available for licensing.
Some of our copyrights, as indicated in the available technologies list, have been developed and tested in the University environment, and it requires substantial software development efforts by the licensee before a commercial product can be launched in the market. Therefore, we encourage the businesses to explore these copyrights from the perspective of their existing technology strength.
