Technology Commercialization

The Ronnie K. Irani Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth's success in technology commercialization is the result of our unique aggregation of the top intellectual capital on campus: OU professors and researchers who invent new technologies or processes, interdisciplinary I-CCEW Interns, and the expertise of OU's Office of Technology Development. A technology commercialization project begins when an OU researcher discloses a new technology to OTD. These technologies come from a variety of industries, ranging from biotechnologies to weather radar and infrared detection.

I-CCEW Interns work on a technology for one semester, during which they analyze the technology’s benefits, conduct extensive industry and market research, and ultimately recommend the path to market that will generate the largest financial return to OU and to the technology’s inventor.
