Technology Readiness Index

One of the tools that aligns CTC's resources with the needs of USC technology developers is the Technology Readiness Index. Working in partnership with a number of organizations on campus and off, we developed an index that helps inventors, developers, funders, CTC, and others determine how close a technology is to market readiness. In that way, we can direct the right resources to the inventor and help outside parties locate USC technologies at the right stage.

We have the following Tech Readiness Indices available for download:

Biomedical Device

Biotech - Drug Development

Software

Hardware-Software
