About the Penn State Intellectual Property Patents Auction

The Intellectual Property Auction works to promote intellectual property commercialization of Penn State University patented inventions.  Years of research and development have produced a variety of unique new technologies, tools and other intellectual property (IP) that we currently hold under intellectual technology licenses.

Our ultimate goal is to license these technologies and see them commercialized for application in existing corporations or for entrepreneurial start-up companies. We hold a vault of intellectual property that includes biotechnology patents, chemistry patents, material patents, engineering patents, information technology (IT) patents, and molecular biology patents.

Penn State’s Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) are recognized by law. You can purchase intellectual property licenses to any of our patents, whether currently on auction or not by contacting the Penn State Research Foundation.
