The Office of Innovation and Commercialization supports campus innovators working on discoveries resulting from their research activities by providing an array of expertise, services, and initiatives including assistance in pursuing funding opportunities for late-stage basic and applied research and development, hosting training and education programs, preparing and negotiating licensing agreements with established companies as well as start-ups. In addition, as a means to facilitate transfer of technologies developed on campus, we partner directly with the MTEC SmartZone and other organizations in active and direct support of researcher-led startup businesses.
