From treatments to tech, UBC discoveries have significant social and economic impacts.
Commercialization and technology transfer help UBC research discoveries reach their maximum potential. UBC currently has more than 450 licensing agreements for its technologies. Our research is the foundation of more than 235 spin-off companies, and is at the heart of products, services, and treatments that have generated an estimated $11.5 billion in sales.
Want to commercialize a research discovery?
The University-Industry Liaison Office works with UBC researchers and industry partners to commercialize research outputs and translate them into impactful treatments, products and services through mutually beneficial agreements.
If you are a UBC researcher, you can contact a member of the UILO Technology Transfer team to discuss your innovation and how the UILO can help.
Potential licensees, investors and entrepreneurs can contact the UILO Technology Transfer group to find out more about the process, and search all current licensing opportunities.
