Research / Tech Transfer


Michigan's universities aren't just for research, ivory towers and football games anymore. They have become experts in helping create the cutting-edge companies of tomorrow by helping local businesses and entrepreneurs commercialize the technologies discovered from university research. Mention the word commercialization at the University of Michigan or Wayne State University and you'll find yourself heading toward their offices of tech transfer, the local business accelerator and even the local boardroom sooner than you think.
