Welcome to the Catalyst Centre
We’re proud to announce that the Business Development Office has been renamed the Catalyst Centre to better reflect our role in transforming the University of Guelph’s world-class research into innovations that change lives and improve life.
The Catalyst Centre helps faculty, staff and students protect their intellectual property and maximize its potential economic, social and environmental benefits. We provide advice on patenting and commercialization opportunities, including licensing and startup ventures.
Through our Industry Liaison Program, we connect U of G expertise and resources with the R&D needs of companies and entrepreneurs, to form valuable research partnerships and leverage funding opportunities.
U of G is a global leader in research related to food, human and animal health, the environment and communities. The Catalyst Centre is where that ingenuity meets the marketplace, and great ideas reach their full potential.
