About TMCR

Our goal within Technology Management & Corporate Relations (TMCR) is to translate innovative research into successful commercial impact. We work closely with campus researchers and innovators and engage with the local community, businesses and partner organizations to ensure that new technologies become the foundation for new products and services that address societal needs and foster economic growth.

TMCR's success is based on our close working relationships with faculty and personnel within academic and administrative units across the campus, as well as our effective engagement with the local economic community including government, business and not-for-profit organizations.
