There are almost 200 active innovation files from the various Colleges at the University of Saskatchewan available for partnering with entrepreneurs and companies.
That’s the message from the university’s Innovation Enterprise, which has launched a Fast License program to speed up the commercialization process.
Assistant Director of Innovation Enterprise, Alix Hayden, says it doesn’t have to be an expensive, long drawn out task to work out a licensing agreement.
She explains that key business terms are available in a succinct and simple summary and it’s transparent.
Some of the research being done at the U of S that can be commercialized includes gold recovery technology from consumer electronic waste, cheaper bio-fuels, and the improved diagnosis of asthma versus COPD.
