Office of Commercialization and Industry Collaboration (OCIC)

The OCIC is responsible for managing the intellectual property assets of the University of South Alabama, while also serving as the point of contact for industry collaboration partners.  We orchestrate the cooperation between university, industry and government stakeholders to develop faculty inventions into products on the market. Although patentable inventions constitute the majority of OCIC’s licensing activities, we also handle copyright, Tangible Research Property, Material Transfer Agreements, an d Confidential Disclosure Agreements.
