You are here


As a researcher, you know how to develop technologies that are ground-breaking and innovative. You have critical information to provide to industry. But do you know how to identify industry partners looking for your novel ideas and emerging technologies?

On the flip-side, industry has specific needs that must be met. However, they may not fully recognize the university’s vast research potential.

The ILO will lay the groundwork for mutually-beneficial collaborations with industry and partner organizations.
