Example Tech Transfer Projects

The Innovation Center of the Rockies maintains a collaborative relationship with the University of Denver, the University of Wyoming, the University of Colorado’s Technology Transfer Office, the Colorado School of Mines Technology Transfer Office and CSU Ventures, the office that handles Tech Transfer for Colorado State University. Through its extensive network of advisors, the Innovation Center of the Rockies links faculty research to Advisors with expertise in science and technology business development.

The following list of projects are examples of the kinds of technologies we work with. Please click on the link for a description of the project or send us an email with your resume and name of the project you that interests you.
