WaikatoLink’s primary role is to commercialise research ideas and technologies generated at the University of Waikato

If you are a University of Waikato researcher and have an innovative idea or research concept, we’d love to hear about it. Just contact one of our Commercial Managers or complete a Commercial Project Request Notice (link below) and return it to us. We will then begin putting your idea through our commercialisation process, which is illustrated below.

If you are external to the University of Waikato, we’d be happy to talk to you about any projects you are undertaking and we may be able to provide commercial advice or connections where possible.
