University of Florida Research Foundation

The University of Florida, with the approval of the Board of Regents, established the University of Florida Research Foundation, Inc. (UFRF), a direct support organization, in June 1986 to promote, encourage and provide assistance to the research activities of the University faculty, staff and students. Incorporated by the State of Florida in August 1986, the not-for-profit organization provides a means by which research can be conducted flexibly and efficiently and by which discoveries, inventions, processes and work products of University of Florida faculty, staff and students can be transferred from the laboratory to the public. Funds generated by licensing such discoveries are used to enhance research at the University of Florida.
