Classes offered by UIRF
UIRF offers several introductory courses to the UI community. Classes are virtual (Zoom) and are discussion-based. Participants are encouraged to bring questions.
These classes are designed to give faculty, staff and students an introduction to the commercialization process from invention disclosure through post-licensing. Participants will gain a better understanding on how to approach innovation, and how UIRF gets their ideas to the market; by licensing to an existing company or a start-up.
Each class is independent of the others and participants do not need to be currently working with UIRF to join.
