Technology Transfer offers an opportunity for universities to commercialize IP generated on their campuses. This MQP examines a ski binding technology developed at WPI as a case study to understand the university tech transfer system from the perspective of the inventors, Tech Transfer Office, and university. Recommendations include increasing commercial focus, understanding opportunity cost of tech transfer, and improving communication between the inventors, Tech Transfer Office, and university in order to create a prosperous union of innovation between these stakeholders.
