The Office of Innovation & Technology Commercialization makes available to the public via licenses inventions resulting from LSU research. This office negotiates the terms of the license, including reasonable initial licensing fees royalties, and other fees, for use in furthering LSU's educational and research goals.

When a technology is licensed, LSU still holds title to the technology. Only certain rights in the technology are granted to the licensee, under specific terms and conditions, as specified by LSU Policy.
