The University of Louisville is dedicated to translating research from the lab to the market, where pioneering discoveries and innovations can positively impact society at-large.

In many cases, the most efficient way to accomplish this transition involves licensing these innovations to external partners for their further development and commercialization.

Our licensing process strives to provide the most flexible, individual deal-focused negotiations as possible within our limitations as a Kentucky public university. We craft deals that maximize the benefits for UofL, the creators, the licensee, and the public. We view licensing as an ongoing and engaging partnership, rather than a simple transaction.

If you are interested in licensing a technology from us, or wish to learn about potential opportunities please contact EPI-Center staff. Likewise, if you are aware of a licensing opportunity and would like to let us know, please get in touch – we’re always happy to hear about interest in partnering with us and our researchers.
