Office of Intellectual Property & Innovation


A Message from the Director

Welcome to the website of the WPI Office of Intellectual Property & Innovation. Practical innovation with industrial application is deeply rooted in the WPI academic tradition. I am confident you will find product ready technology solutions on our site in the life sciences, medical devices, communications, industrial processes, clean energy, transportation, software and more.

As you explore our intellectual property inventory, visit our linked technology centers and institutes, and develop a sense of our university culture, we hope the impression you get is of a versatile basic and applied research environment. Our research faculty is adaptive. Individual investigators regularly collaborate across disciplines to address new technological paradigms, for example in the Bioengineering Institute and at the new Gateway Park where investigators from multiple academic departments cluster.

At WPI we welcome the opportunity to research state of the art solutions to critical industrial, medical, and environmental problems. Commercial relevance is one of the ways we measure success in our research programs.

And after you've taken a look, please let me know what you think.
