IP and University Collaborations

Ontario Tech University conducts high-quality, rigorous research designed to meet the research and development needs of business and industry and benefit society. Whether the focus is on developing hydrogen-from-nuclear or fuel-cell technologies, improving network security or understanding youth crime, we are committed to interdisciplinary research and development that addresses social, environmental, health and economic challenges.

Ontario Tech looks to work with companies in a way that helps develop a relationship that is tailored around their interests. Thus, we are happy to explore collaborations, licenses, options, assignments, etc. It is the belief that only through enabling the company to utilize their business model will Ontario Tech technology offerings be able to make impact within the marketplace.

Our faculty researchers do not receive additional compensation for choosing to work with industry. In addition, the university has no profit margin. As a result, when faculty and students contribute to the creation of new IP such as patents, the university and the inventor(s) share in the profits resulting from commercialization
