Agreements


OTT has collected quarterly and annual metrics that provide a clear view of our activities. We then visualized that data through accessible charts and tables. These charts and tables reveal how our work benefits OTT as well as our partners, faculty, and entrepreneurs.

Net Revenue

When OTT licenses new technology to companies we often receive payments such as upfront fees, milestones, patent reimbursement, and royalties. This graph, and companion table, show the total license revenue received by Emory from its partners by fiscal year.

Legal Expenses

Each year, OTT pursues intellectual property protection, mostly patent protection, for the portfolio of inventions that we manage. This graph, and companion table, show the total cost of these legal expenses by fiscal year. In some cases, these expenses are reimbursed by our licensees or co-owners as they are incurred.

OTT Standard Data Request Disclosure

Below is a list of caveats to keep in mind related to data requests concerning technology transfer activity.

  • Department assignments are made at the time of disclosure to the best of OTTs knowledge for Emory faculty, staff, or student listed on the disclosure form. These technology assignments do not change over time.
  • Agreements can be counted more than once. This is due to the one-to-many relationship between the data element and inventors. For example, one disclosure can have multiple inventors listed and each of those can be associated with a different department. Therefore, each department “count” would include that same disclosure. This type of data cannot be summed for totals.
  • Agreements will include only exclusive and non-exclusive agreements that are active, expired, or terminated.
