In Brazil, the Technology Licensing Office (TLO) is responsible for protecting and commercializing the Intellectual Property (IP) in a Scientific and Technological Institution (STI). When TLO's operation is analyzed, it can be understood that TLOs still need to develop their organizational skills in order to achieve their goals, particularly on technology protection and commercialization strategies. This paper presents a process model with three key processes, namely Admit Techology, Protect Technology, and Commercialize Technology, with their respective subprocesses, and other support processes. With the operationalization of the process model presented, TLO can analyze the technologies and define the strategies for their protection and commercialization, enhancing their transfer to the productive sector. This model was successfully applied to a TLO of a military STI.
