Mission

Innovation Partnership Services (IPS) partners with UO innovators, the public, and industry to accelerate the adoption of innovations derived from UO research and education.

We treat technology transfer as a fundamental extension of the University of Oregon's teaching and public benefit missions, and we employ a diversity of innovation management pathways to connect University research to societal benefit. Rather than viewing the generation of a large intellectual property portfolio as an end in itself, we make targeted use of intellectual property rights to advance the uptake of UO innovations.

Whether you are a member of the University of Oregon community, the public, or from industry, you will find a number of resources on our website to assist you in partnering with our office to bring UO innovation into greater use.
