The MARKETING AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT OFFICE (MBDO) manages and facilitates the transfer of innovative and inventive technologies that originate at the Environmental Technology Centre, as well as markets and promotes the services and facilities of the Centre itself. The MBDO identifies and protects the Centre’s intellectual property, and devises and implements business development strategy to find licensees or collaborators in other levels of government, academia, and the private sector - both domestically and internationally. In some cases, participants in these various arrangements may have the option of developing technologies for their own specific purposes, using their own facilities and expertise, or opt for assistance from ETC’s scientists and engineers, in its laboratory facilities.


Variety of technology transfer options - licensing, collaborative research and development, joint development agreements.

Business Arrangements and Process

Parties interested in learning more about technologies and related business/collaborative opportunities are invited to contact the MBDO. If a licensing arrangement is of interest, companies are invited to make a proposal and submit a general business outline indicating the technology of interest - the functionality, anticipated markets, geographic area, product or service being contemplated; the capability, capacity and strategy of the company to commercialize it; proposed payment and other general information to demonstrate it will be successful. The MBDO will advise companies on the method and requirements that it will apply when evaluating proposals and deciding if applicants are acceptable. Once a party has demonstrated it meets the criteria, the MBDO will work with them to negotiate a suitable license, collaborative, joint development agreement, etc. arrangement to formalize the transfer. Once complete the MBDO will facilitate the technology transfer to the successful party and monitor the agreements during implementation.
