Innovation & Technology Commercialization

As a unit of the Office of Research & Innovation, the mission of the Office of Innovation & Technology Commercialization is to identify commercializable technologies and discoveries that originate from research activities on campus and find pathways to partnerships that will lead to marketed products that benefit society.

We are an innovation resource for Miami faculty, staff and students. We work with inventors and researchers to identify new approaches to solving problems or meeting needs that can be protected with the creation of intellectual property rights. In addition to working with innovators to assess and identify the right opportunities for investment of the university’s patent funds, we also market the university’s portfolio of innovation cases to potential licensees for further development and assist with corporate research relationships, material transfers, and nondisclosure/confidentiality agreements.

Miami inventors/researchers can begin the conversation by completing an invention disclosure form and/or contacting Michael W. Crowder, Interim Vice President for Research & Innovation.
