Core Activities
    OTDIL achieve the goals primarily through the process known as technology transfer, or the licensing of intellectual property resulting from our research. OTDIL assists Chang Gung University faculty and inventors to obtain patent protection for their technology, and thereafter to license such technologies to industry. OTDIL provides a full spectrum of services to the faculty in order to achieve these objectives, deploying accurate resources in patent strategies, analyzing best positions for patenting, and optimizing interests of parties commercializing our technologies. OTDIL grants licenses to both existing and start- up companies and, when appropriate, proactively spurs the formation of new ventures around Chang Gung technologies. For the effective ways of introducing external resources, the office has channeled a mechanism for academic entities in CGU to collaborate with our industrial partners in the form research funding and practical training programs. With our strong commitment necessary to advance and develop our technologies into effects, the office provides firmly on the administration supports for the University and industry around the advanced venues.

    Finally, OTDIL provides advice and counsel to the president of Chang Gung University on matters pertaining to university policy on intellectual property, licensing, new venture formation, and industry-sponsored research agreements.
