Thursday April 11th, 2024, 8:26pm


The University of Windsor has been awarded $300,000 by Intellectual Property Ontario (IPON) to fortify its intellectual property capabilities.

The funding is earmarked for UWindsor’s Office of Research Partnership, a key player in technology transfer and industry collaboration, enhancing the University’s capacity to bring inventions to market.

The investment is part of IPON’s broader initiative, investing $2.9 million into 10 Ontario postsecondary institutions to fuel innovation and commercial endeavours.
The University of Windsor plans to utilize the funds to advance technology transfer and foster industry partnerships, crucial steps in transforming university inventions into market-ready innovations.

Shanthi Johnson, Vice President of Research and Innovation at UWindsor, expressed gratitude and enthusiasm for the IPON support, highlighting the University’s vibrant community of inventors and innovators.

“The University of Windsor and the Windsor-Essex community have a strong roster of inventors and innovators who develop new technologies that will shape how we live, work and play,” said Dr. Johnson.

Adding to its strategic initiatives, the University of Windsor has also forged a partnership with Brock University. This collaboration introduces a technology transfer internship, providing students with invaluable insights into intellectual property’s role in enhancing the experiences of cross-border communities.

Among the University of Windsor’s ready-to-market technologies is a compact wireless breathing-detection sensor. This innovative device combines various inputs to track breathing patterns without the encumbrance of wires and heavy equipment.
