Tech Commercialization

The University of Notre Dame has a vibrant community of researchers who are committed to discovery and innovation. The technology commercialization pipeline at Notre Dame helps the University’s researchers translate their work into real-world, marketable solutions.

The IDEA Center

The IDEA (Innovation, Discovery, and Enterprise Acceleration) Center at Notre Dame is a transformative new conceptual structure that will support a vibrant culture of research, innovation, and commercialization. Its suite of services will help move innovations to implementation by enabling Notre Dame faculty and students to more effectively innovate - to find intellectual property, to translate discoveries, to launch startup companies, and to leverage meaningful partnerships for social and commercial benefit.
