Innovation Alliances & Services
We help move UC innovations from the lab to the market.
Innovation Alliances and Services (IAS) acts at the systemwide level to support UC campuses as they build partnerships and collaborations with regional, national and global companies. We support UC inventors and entrepreneurs; develop and manage programs that enhance university–industry relationships; create tools to help connect external parties to researchers and encourage best practices at UC campuses as they forge alliances with industry. We also support technology transfer operations by providing information systems, financial management, patent prosecution and intellectual property management services.
