    Our Team

    WORLDiscoveries is the Business Development arm of London’s extensive research network and the bridge between local invention and global industry.

    • Identifying, protecting and promoting promising discoveries and technologies generated at Western, Robarts & Lawson;
    • Guiding and assisting inventors in exercising value-added technology development strategy and exploring commercialization funding opportunities;
    • Negotiating and closing licensing deals with industrial partners committed to developing Western, Robarts & Lawson inventions.
