New Commercialization Framework launched

From OAC 21 barley that transformed the brewing industry a century ago, to Yukon Gold potatoes developed 50 years ago that remain a staple on dinner plates, to novel biopolymers that are fuelling the green economy today, our research enterprise leads the way in creating new products and processes to improve life.

The University has reaffirmed its longstanding commitment to improving life with discovery and innovation with the introduction of a new Commercialization Framework,

This Framework, which will be implemented by the Research Innovation Office, outlines the University’s principled approach to research commercialization, providing faculty, staff, and students with resources and policies to help protect, manage and commercialize intellectual property for U of G-related research. It includes information and resources about technology transfer, research partnership, knowledge mobilization, invention disclosure policy, external resources and engagement with the innovation ecosystem, and reporting and continuous improvement. 

Read the full Framework on the Office of Research website.
