Developing and Protecting Great Ideas

UP Mindanao Technology Transfer and Business Development Office (TTBDO) manages the intellectual properties of the University for intellectual property rights protection and commercialization. We seek partnerships from government agencies, private industries, and other entities for further development as well as public utilization of the technologies and other works of the University. Introducing the technologies and works of the University for public use can be routed to market through licensing of the product, establishing a spin-off company, collaborating through a joint venture, and having an outright sale.

Invention Disclosure Incentive (IDI)

The IDI is an incentive program granted to inventors, researchers, faculty members, students, staff and visiting professors undertaking research and/or creative activities who discloses the existence and assign patent rights and other related rights such as undisclosed information or know-how.
