Why partner on research?

There are many reasons to form partnerships with community, government and industrial partners during the course of a research project, including:

For researchers working on technologies intended for the commercial market, finding an industrial partner at an early stage and involving them in the development process makes sense. When the innovation reaches a stage where it is ready for the marketplace, the industrial partner is a natural choice to license the technology and make the innovation available to the public. License deals with established industry partners tend to proceed fairly smoothly as the licensee is already familiar with the technology, the inventors, and the University. UVic Industry Partnership will work with you to identify potential partners for your research project, and provide advice and guidance as your partnership moves forward.
