A sign of the University of Iowa Technology Institute's value are the technologies invented and matured here that have blossomed commercially. In some cases, a private venture obtains the exclusive license for the technology to continue development and use. In other cases, companies sponsor research in ITI labs on particular technologies. The mission at ITI is to focus our research in ways that benefit society. Tech transfer demonstrates our research secures societal, if not tangible, return on investment for ITI's sponsors and supporters.
