Our Mission

The primary mission of UCSB’s Office of Technology & Industry Alliances (TIA) is to build the foundation for long-term, productive and mutually beneficial relationships between UCSB and its industry collaborators.

About Us

TIA was established in August 2005 with two main responsibilities: to manage the intellectual property developed through UCSB research (including out-licensing) and to manage the many agreements with industry partners that support research collaborations (including research agreements, material transfer agreements, non-disclosure agreements and memorandums of understanding).

TIA was one of the first university technology transfer offices to have full delegation of authority to negotiate and execute both licensing and research agreements. Our ability to negotiate both licensing and research agreements eliminates the need for our corporate partners to progress through multiple university offices and gives TIA the opportunity to build an in-depth understanding of the needs of our industry partners. It also allows TIA to simultaneously negotiate licensing and research agreements, when appropriate.
