Applied Research Support

Partnerships with Industry | Commercialize
Your Research | Protect Your IP

Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) is uniquely positioned to aid in the commercialization of research across a wide range of disciplines in Alberta. At CAAI, we offer a collaborative industry-academia business model to assist in the commercialization of Intellectual Property (IP). 

CUE encourages industry-academia collaboration to develop innovative solutions that address societal needs. In the case of collaborative research with industry, each party owns their background IP. Ownership of new IP is determined based on institutional policies and inventorship. By default, any new IP developed by CUE faculty members is owned by them in absence of any third-party agreements or pre-existing commitments. Joint IP ownership with industry members may result in such cases. The IP commercialization framework allows for flexible licensing and revenue sharing models in case of industry/academia collaboration and more importantly in cases of joint IP ownership with industry.
