Partnership Process

(See full “Industry liaison” process)

Partnerships & Innovation 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 Partnerships & Innovation 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 Partnerships & Innovation to facilitate discussion of intellectual property (see IP policy) terms.
