Commercializing Campus Technology Monday, October 1 | 1:30 pm 3:00 pm Universities and research institutes across the world have produced innovative technologies with straightforward lab to market journey culminating in the development of a commercial enterprise (e.g., Ostara, NanoH2O, Oasys). Many technologies have not made this journey and sit on a shelf waiting to be discovered. What does it take for successful commercialization?
