BU is committed to getting our researchers’ ideas, technology, and work into the hands of the people they can benefit. The University’s Industry Engagement and Technology Development offices are here to help, whether that means facilitating industry meetings, creating intellectual property (e.g., patent, copyright) to protect your idea, completing license agreements, or providing guidance for a plan that meets your objective.
Choose Your Path to Impact
The Technology Development and Industry Engagement teams can help you bring your ideas to the people, industries, and markets you wish to benefit. Read about the paths below to learn more about your options, and begin thinking about which path best fits your objective and life constraints.
None of these pathways seem to fit? We believe new frontiers require new paths. Reach out using the Contacts tab above.
