Partnership Process

(See full “Industry liaison” process)

TTO can enable potential partnerships with the industry by:

  • Understanding the needs of a potential partner.
  • Acting as a liaison between University expertise and your company.
  • Connecting you to a suitable researcher according to your company’s needs.
  • Finding a technology to invest on for helping your company reach its potential.

Companies are encouraged to contact TTO when interested in partnering with university researchers.

Once a partner is ready to engage in collaborative research with the University, the Office of Research Services (ORS) is involved in all contract proposals and will coordinate with the TTO to facilitate discussion of intellectual property (see IP policy) terms.
