We are the commercialization arm of TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre, dedicated to linking cutting-edge science and technology to tangible business opportunities. TRIUMF Innovations acts as a connector to the business world by providing market opportunities for applied physics-based technologies that emerge from the TRIUMF network – by streamlining access to TRIUMF’s world-class expertise and infrastructure, and by connecting TRIUMF researchers and technologies to the world via industry partnerships, licensing, and business development.

To date, TRIUMF Innovations has helped five spin off companies successfully go to market, with more are in the pipeline. TRIUMF Innovations helps TRIUMF startups navigate complex intellectual property management, assisting with patent filings, invention disclosures, fundraising, partnering and investment.
