What We Have Accomplished

We explore the related knowledge transformation processes of knowledge translation (KT), technology transfer (TT), and commercial transactions (CT) in the context of technology-based innovation.

On a practical level, we work with companies, corporations, universities and entrepreneurs to commercialize prototype inventions that offer functional benefit to persons with disabilities. We apply the lessons learned from this work to explore the critical factors that determine success or failure in projects sponsored to create beneficial socio-economic impacts. We hope that this combination of practical experience and conceptual understanding helps improve Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) policies.
