Thank you for supporting life-changing innovations and the next generation of startups.
Innovative technologies, research experts and high-performance facilities help your organization remain competitive.
Materials innovations and discoveries at UB often turn into useful products and services that create efficiencies, save energy or lives and impact society. Our Technology Transfer team works with companies to quickly transfer technology to the private sector with agreeable terms and provides opportunities for further development and commercial applications.
Sometimes manufacturers need to test, prototype or pilot before full scale production. Let us do the legwork! UB can help our clients access well-equipped facilities to help finalize development of your products or processes. Access cost effective suite of advanced scientific and engineering equipment and instrumentation, or engage with our high performance and cloud computing infrastructure to explore and advance applications of “big data” in materials science.
