Identify and pursue commercial potentialThe UAB IIE expands UAB’s ability to cast a broad net to identify innovations, select the most promising ones and develop the commercial potential.
We will help innovators evaluate the commercial and licensing potential of their innovations and assist with preliminary assessments of commercial viability and risk, evaluation of prototypes and estimates of development costs.
Innovations may follow several paths to commercialization. Not all inventors want to form a company or participate in commercializing their invention. We will work closely with stakeholders to develop a successful strategy for any scenario that arises to ensure the inventor, university and the community receive the most benefit from all discoveries that arise at UAB.
