In accordance with MA government directives to restrict exposure to Covid-19 by closing many physical workspaces, and also following best practices in “social distancing,” MIT has necessarily restricted most on-campus and in-person work activities.
However, the MIT Technology Licensing Office is fully operational on a remote basis. We continue to support the innovation activities of MIT’s research community and we are available for all day-to-day business engagements. Our business hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30am-5:30pm EST.
The TLO hosts virtual office hours for MIT researchers on the 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month from 2-3pm EDT. If you are an MIT researcher working on an invention and would like to talk to us about the disclosure, patenting, or commercialization process or if you have general tech transfer questions that we can help answer, we’d be glad to meet with you! Sign up for an appointment here.
Please see below for some guidance on specific questions you may have on conducting business with the TLO.
