Challenges to the Commercialization of University Innovation and Technology Transfer

Long-term university investment in faculty, a focus on relevant technologies, and leveraging the entrepreneurial and financial ecosystem around IU are a key to successful commercialization. IU’s Innovation and Commercialization Office (IU ICO), under the umbrella of IU’s Office of the Vice President for Research, led by Fred Cate, is focused on this mission. The IU Quarry program provides IU faculty and staff entrepreneurs opportunities and resources to explore early stage research funding, SBIR/STTR grants and other commercialization opportunities. Currently managed by the ICO office, IU Quarry is focused on developing new programs and leveraging the existing infrastructure in Indiana and the global IU network.
