Industry-sponsored research is another way that UA knowledge becomes a part of products and services in the commercial and public spheres. Tech Launch Arizona helps identify and facilitate these opportunities for enterprises and UA researchers to work together.
Through sponsored research, businesses accumulate skills, understanding, information, data and more, while UA faculty benefit from funding, access to specialized facilities and equipment, the opportunity to work with patented IP, etc.
Revenues from Sponsored Research
Principal investigators are eligible to receive part of the revenue distribution from potential IP created through sponsored research, albeit via an alternative process.
Arizona Choice offers four, clear options for licensing designed to ensure all parties get maximum benefit, protect the interests of industry as well as faculty and keep projects from stalling in licensing negotiations. Learn more about Arizona Choice.
