UVic Industry Partnerships
UVic Industry Partnerships is an industry liaison and technology transfer office for an university. UVic Industry Partnerships connects industry with academia through research collaborations, joint funding applications, and technology/Intellectual Property licensing. We assist the University members by facilitating/coordinating these partnerships, and we offer business development and intellectual property protection services (ie patents).
We are a small office of 10 full time people with backgrounds in business, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering, materials engineering, law and much more. We work very closely with all of our clients (faculty members from the University) to advance their discoveries though assisting with grants etc and commercializing their technologies.
We have two groups that we are targeting. The University community (faculty, students, staff, board of governors, stakeholders) and Industry (CEOs, Business Development Officers, CTOs etc from technology firms, labs, R&D companies and pharmaceutical companies)
We are a service for the University community but the community is not obligated to use our services. We want to strengthen our brand to encourage faculty and students to use our services more often for their technologies and discoveries.
We want to be able to approach industry (technology companies, pharmaceutical companies etc) with a professional brand when we are trying to get them to support University research and invest/license university technologies.
With the logo we want to balance how we are friendly and helpful to our clients (University faculty) and how we are professional, innovative and business minded to the industry that we are marketing University technologies and research to.
Key words: Collaboration, partnerships, technology, synergy, science, innovation, connections, research, academia, industry, opportunities, liaison, patents, launchpad, accelerator, advancing
