Industry Partnerships

The UIRF partners with industry to commercialize University of Iowa developed technologies. We seek companies to work in partnership with us to achieve maximum benefit for the public, and to the mutual benefit of all involved. We take seriously your commitment of time to move through this process, and value your unique needs.

For those already acquainted with the licensing process, we welcome you to view the current licensing opportunities. Our technology database is broken down by scientific category and each listed technology is currently available for licensing. If you desire further assistance in this, please call a licensing professional directly to discuss your needs.

If you are new to the site, or to the university licensing process, please see Our Process. There is also a user section that outlines the various aspects of a licensing agreement and how they can be tailored to your needs. There are examples of other sample agreements that may be needed.
