Innovation York, the commercialization and industry liaison office for York University, has launched its new website providing researchers with access to resources and information within its four service streams: agreements, industry liaison, commercialization and entrepreneurship.
“Innovation York is committed to facilitating meaningful academic-industry collaborations and partnerships in order to stimulate innovative research and ensure that innovations developed at York have the widest economic and social impact possible,” said Robert Haché, York’s vice-president research and innovation. “The new website provides York researchers and industry with access to information and valuable resources more efficiently.”
For York researchers and trainees, the website offers information on the process required to find industry partners to support innovative research collaborations, as well as how Innovation York can work with its clients to support the commercialization of intellectual assets and the services it provides to researchers to support the review of third-party research agreements.
It also includes information on how Innovation York and ventureLAB™ work together to support faculty and student entrepreneurs as they incorporate and grow startup companies.
The website also guides industry with a one-stop access point to learn more about how the Innovation York team can help them navigate the York University research community and find academic partners to support innovative research collaborations.
