Patenting and commercialization

Memorial University has a system in place to support researchers as they navigate the commercialization process and engage with industry partners. The Office of the Vice-President (Research) is responsible for protecting and commercializing the intellectual property of researchers at Memorial. Our staff can help researchers protect their intellectual property, partner with an industry collaborator and bring their ideas to market. For more information on this subject please contact:
