Auburn University Ready-to-Sign

What is Auburn's Ready-to-Sign licensing program?

Auburn University's Ready-to-Sign licenses simplify the licensing process.  A Ready-to-Sign license prevents the need for timely negotiations by using standardized terms and conditions for non-exclusive deals.

All Ready-to-Sign licenses contain annual flat rate license maintenance fees with no royalties or patent expense reimbursements.

If you would like to discuss changes in the provided Ready-to-Sign agreements, or if you would like to inquire regarding the exclusive licensing of any of these technologies, please contact Brian Wright, Associate Director for Commercialization by email or at 334-844-7962.
