The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center (ITTC) advances knowledge and creates innovative technologies in telecommunications, information systems, bioinformatics, and radar. We are one of the largest research centers at the University of Kansas, with our resources and state-of-the-art facilities supporting various multidisciplinary inquiries. ITTC-affiliated faculty members have served as federal program directors at NSF, DARPA, and NASA.

The labs within ITTC receive computing resources, RF engineering for layout and construction, and programming expertise which are supported by dedicated technical staff. These capabilities are sustained by a 7% fee on direct costs (excluding subcontracts, participant support costs, and tuition) on all sponsored research within the center.

ITTC researchers are helping shape not only national policy but also the technology leaders of tomorrow. ITTC is committed to the continued growth and diversity of the State's economy. Under faculty guidance, our students conduct fundamental research and develop strategic solutions for Kansas companies and national industries.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
