One of the better known missions of university is to teach and create
knowledge; however, in today’s world, it also needs to focus on research to generate
development for society’s growth. Universities are now making Intellectual Property
(IP) and patenting their research, either to generate profit and transfer that technology
by licensing it or selling it to the industry to commercialize it or to help the economic
development of their region. Specialized offices are created within the university to
facilitate the interaction between the university researchers and the industry.
Universities in Mexico have started to follow the path of Technology Transfer, but
there is still so much to learn to achieve the international levels and to meet the industry
needs. Thus some new guidelines and process are introduced to the researchers to
identify the potential future of an investigation.
