Office of Partnership & Innovation (OPI)

Visit the Office of Partnership & Innovation Website.

The Office of Partnership & Innovation (originally PARTEQ Innovations) was founded in 1987 by Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario, Canada to commercialize intellectual property (e.g. inventions) arising from university-generated research. A not-for-profit organization, OPI provides institutional researchers with the business, intellectual property, and financial expertise that is needed to advance their discoveries to the public, while returning the proceeds from those activities to researchers and their institutions.

OPI works with principal investigators to students, postdocs, staff or alumni to help you advance your discovery to market.
