McMaster researchers disclose more than 80 inventions and creative works to the McMaster Industry Liaison Office (MILO) every year. Advisors at MILO work with these inventors and creators to file patents or other IP protection, evaluate market opportunities, and identify potential licensees or investors to move these technologies forward. Our goal is to support McMaster researchers in licensing these inventions to existing companies or supporting the creation of start-up companies to create social and economic benefit for all Canadians.
Companies looking for new innovations, or investors and entrepreneurs looking for start-up opportunities, can search for available technologies. For inquiries, please contact Glen Crossley, Associate Director, Business Development and Intellectual Property.
