The Office of Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship at WPI identifies, evaluates, values, protects, classifies, markets, and licenses the intellectual property  developed by WPI researchers and other significant users of WPI resources.


WPI provides an array of resources to help faculty and students conduct research safely and in accordance with established guidelines and regulatory requirements.
