The Technology Commercialization Centre's core focus is supporting the development of fundamental knowledge in the areas of technology innovation and commercialization through scholarly research. To this end we are raising the visibility of our own expertise, as well as that of the commercialization and entrepreneurship research community. We sponsor workshops, conferences and talks featuring world class scholars.
The Centre encourages and nurtures the tech-entrepreneurs and leaders of the future by providing them with the skills and resources they need to enhance innovation and technology commercialization practices. In particular, the TCC encourages entrepreneurially-minded individuals who have a passion for developing key scientific and technological issues in areas such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, biomedical devices, computing and communications.
In addition, the Centre fosters connections between university research and industry. The TCC stimulates technology entrepreneurship through partnerships with key stakeholders such as TEC Edmonton, and Alberta Innovates.
