There is significant opportunity within the University environment to generate technology which can lead to commercial, educational, and social value. In order to be successful, one needs to navigate the University infrastructure while pursuing partnerships with external companies or agencies. This presentation will highlight some of the key issues faced by researchers and present strategies to increase the chance of project success.


Mark Weber is a technology transfer manager at McGill University. After receiving his doctoral degree from McGill in Chemical Engineering, he moved to the province of Alberta to work for NOVA Chemicals as a polyethylene product development scientist. Mark had several stints at NOVA, including as a team leader in both technical service and polyethylene product development. He also worked as a project manager for an engineering firm and as the vice president, research and development, for an energy start-up company. Mark moved back to Montreal in 2011 to work at an environmental start-up before coming to McGill in 2012. He is responsible for commercializing technologies developed within the Faculties of Engineering, Science, and Music.
