Industry Engagement

The University of Windsor works with industry, not-for-profit and government organizations for the benefit of the local community and the Windsor-Essex region. With world-class researchers, industry and community organizations can test new ideas and technologies to remain competitive in the local, national or global market. The University of Windsor is committed to establishing and building relationships with industry partners.

The University of Windsor will work with industry and assist in developing agreements and projects that are mutually beneficial for all parties. Intellectual property will be discussed and determined on an individual basis and will be set out in the research agreement.

All intellectual property developed at the University of Windsor will have a right for the University of Windsor to use such information for non-commercial research and educational purposes.

The Office of Research Services provides assistance with:

  • Matching researchers with companies/industrial partners
  • Providing companies with testing and equipment capabilities
  • Preparing agreements and other documentation
  • Commercialization and intellectual property exploitation
  • Information for dealing with governmental and other agencies

The University of Windsor, through the Office of Research and Innovation Services (ORIS) (Technology Transfer), facilitates the interaction between industry and our expert researchers in creating mutually beneficial collaborations.  Our goal is to become a world leader in knowledge mobilization and exchange by building ongoing and multifaceted partnerships.
