IP, licensing & commercialization

对教师和学校成员的信息

The commercialization of technology is a multi-stage process with the goal of finding suitable application in the marketplace. 该 process starts with the researcher's discovery. From there, Enterprise & Innovation will work with the researcher to help protect the invention. This includes working closely with both the inventor and appropriate patent offices.
