Mission

Printer-friendly version

Innovation Partnership Services (IPS) partners with UO innovators, the public, and industry to accelerate the adoption of innovations derived from UO research and education.

We treat technology transfer as a fundamental extension of the University of Oregon's teaching and public benefit missions, and we employ a diversity of innovation management pathways to connect University research to societal benefit. Rather than viewing the generation of a large intellectual property portfolio as an end in itself, we make targeted use of intellectual property rights to advance the uptake of UO innovations.

Whether you are a member of the University of Oregon community, the public, or from industry, you will find a number of resources on our website to assist you in partnering with our office to bring UO innovation into greater use.
