During the course of your research, have you realized that you are close to a new discovery, innovation, or invention? Research and Sponsored Programs can help you understand the best way to transfer your new technology to industry so that it can provide the greatest public benefit. Who knows, it may even become a commercial success. Your research doesn't need to be complete for the technology transfer process to begin.
