Office of Technology Management and Commercialization (OTMC)

OTMC serves as an educational and management resource for UNO's Intellectual Property (IP). We are responsible for the evaluation, protection, and efficient transfer of IP to the marketplace for the benefit of the university and society.


We work closely with our faculty, staff and students to assess the commercial potential of their creations, discoveries and inventions, and develop strategies for protecting and commercializing the valuable intellectual property assets of the University.


The office seeks industrial partners to commercialize technologies developed at UNO and negotiates all resulting license agreements on behalf of the University. Consistent with the University’s commitment to economic development, we pay particular attention to finding opportunities for regional economic development, including assisting in the formation of start-up companies.

Please contact us if you have any questions, need advice or assistance on IP.  OTMC@uno.edu or 504 280 3943
