Intellectual Property & Commercialization

Body: 

We support the development of relationships between industry and Laurentian, evaluate, protect and commercialize intellectual property developed at the university and disclosed to the Office of Research Services, and provide the coordination of provincially-led entrepreneurship activities.

Specific tasks related to intellectual property management include:

  • advising faculty and students on matter matters relating to intellectual property including patents and copyright reviewing and evaluating invention disclosures
  • conducting prior art and patent searches
  • developing marketing strategies, contacting potential licensees and negotiating licenses
  • managing all expenses and revenues related to commercialization.

For more information, please contact Gisele Roberts, Manager of Innovation and Commercialization, at groberts@laurentian.ca or at ext. 3866.

Laurentian University's Commercialization Framework sets out our institution's commitment to the management and protection of Intellectual Property in a manner that maximizes commercialization opportunities, protects Ontario interests and strengthens the Ontario economy.

Using the policy framework outlined in the document linked below, Laurentian University will develop an Annual Commercialization Plan which will be publicly available by December 15, 2022.
