UC Davis Innovation Access

UC Davis InnovationAccess through the UC Davis Office of Research is a catalyst for the creation of partnerships that advance, for public benefit, the dissemination, utilization, and commercialization of discoveries made in research at UC Davis.  We work in close collaboration with UC Davis researchers to identify and protect discoveries that have value for commercialization, or may be the foundation for further research and development partnerships.  We enable partnerships that facilitate the development of UC Davis discoveries through new businesses created by entrepreneurs or through existing businesses. Our activities benefit the public by advancing research at UC Davis, commercializing novel products, and contributing to regional economic development.
