Working with Industry
NAIT does not take an ownership stake in Intellectual Property (IP) development. NAIT’s applied research services model ensures all IP that is developed in partnership with industry is exclusively retained by the industry partner.
- Fund -- As a recognized polytechnic institute, NAIT is approved to receive and manage research funds from several provincial and federal programs, reducing the cash commitment necessary from industry to engage in applied research projects. We work with industry partners, to help determine appropriate funding programs and assist in completing applications.
- Connect -- We work with other innovation service providers in Alberta, giving our industry partners a single point of contact and access to experienced project management that ties into the broader innovation network.
