Introduction

The Technology Transfer Unit provides the commercial and intellectual property expertise that is needed to advance research-based inventions/technologies toward the marketplace. The Unit, which receives invention disclosures from university faculty, staff and students (and researchers/staff from partner institutions), investigates inventorship, and proposes and implements agreed-to intellectual property and commercialization strategies to accelerate research impacts. The Technology Transfer Unit also provides support to technology-based regional startups under the Federal government’s Canada Accelerator and Incubator Program.
