University Technologies International Inc.

University Technologies International (UTI) was founded by the University of Calgary in 1989 to examine business opportunities resulting from scientific innovation.Similar to the University of Alberta's Research Services Office, the University of Calgary created the University Technologies International (UTI) to commercialize the scientific innovations of its researchers. Established June 1, 1989, UTI is dedicated to "creating business opportunities from scientific innovation." Although UTI was initially created by the U of C, their scope has expanded to include other research groups and corporations, including the University of Lethbridge and Calgary Regional Health Authority.

The strength of UTI is communication. UTI provides investors with technology-based business opportunities, uniting the breakthroughs of the laboratories with stakeholders. This requires a number of diverse skills: marketing, customer service, licensing and corporate strategy. UTI also functions as a consultant to established and newly-started businesses looking for growth opportunities in the high-technology field. The UTI contributes to Alberta’s knowledge-based economy by encouraging the technology sector in both research and development and commercialization.
