Outline

The commercialization of research outcomes is an important objective not just of researchers, but of most public and private funding programs as well. It can also be very rewarding, with potential impact on society, the economy, and the environment at large. Mark Weber of McGill’s Commercialization Office will review the format used by McGill for invention reporting and commercialization, and discuss strategies that allow researchers to work with industry and other partners to maximize the benefits to each.

Summary

After receiving his doctoral degree from McGill in Chemical Engineering, Mark Weber 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 and is now employed at his alma mater, with responsibility for commercializing technologies developed within the Faculty of Engineering.
