In July, 2014, the LSU Research & Technology Foundation (RTF) launched a new partnership with the five research campuses of LSU to enhance technology transfer and commercialization. The RTF will provide common shared administrative and legal services, while each campus will continue to manage its own inventions and operate its own technology transfer office.
The LSU Board of Supervisors, the LSU President, and the leader of each LSU research campus, along with the Board of the RTF, have strongly endorsed this new shared services approach. Through this novel partnership, it is expected that a measurable positive impact will be seen across all aspects of the technology transfer and commercialization process at all campuses of LSU across the state.
