  • On-Campus Innovation

    See your ideas come to life

See how to generate ideas at the Weston Ideation Lab, build them at the Dan T. Moore Makerspace, patent, fund, and commercialize through the Technology Transfer Office, and then create a business plan and strategy.

  • Industry Express Collaboration

    Three Approaches to Collaborate

    Industry Express agreements provide a simple framework to remove financial uncertainty that can be associated with access to university-developed intellectual property rights, including a non-exclusive royalty free license, a paid up exclusive license, and ownership being assigned to the sponsor.
