Close out a Project
The last step in a grant or contract’s life cycle–whether cost-reimbursable or fixed-price–is project closeout. The key feature to any closeout is the submission on time of all technical, financial, and other reports as required to the sponsoring agency.
Texas A&M Technology Commercialization (TTC) is Industry's connection to the A&M System. The TTC provides the link between the laboratories, where innovative new technologies are being developed, and industry partners that will bring them to fruition as a product.
The TTC protects these new innovations, developed by A&M System researchers, through patents and copyrights and seeks to transfer the intellectual property to industry by royalty-bearing license agreements for commercial products that result in economic development and public benefit.
