Innovation starts here
Technology transfer is the movement of innovative research ideas from the lab into the public sphere. At universities, the goal of tech transfer is to implement technology and creative works to maximize public benefit. At SDSU, the Technology Transfer Office (TTO) works to deploy the products of research to improve society and bolster the San Diego regional economy.
