For Business and Industry

Our engineers are engaged with business and industry to develop new technologies and solutions that help businesses stimulate the economy through job creation and economic growth.

Industry Sponsored Research and Research Partnerships

UGA engineers and scientists assist companies with directed research and development projects, leveraging University expertise and resources to develop solutions to technical challenges.

Our scientists and engineers assist companies with directed research and development projects, leveraging university expertise and resources to develop solutions to your firm’s technical challenges. We regularly provide scientifically rigorous. third-part evaluations of new technologies for companies and entrepreneurs seeking to bring products to market. We have the flexibility to offer completely confidential services assessing all of the resources of the University. We serve as a gateway for the transfer of University intellectual property to Georgia companies by identifying faculty and technology that can benefit your business.

We have extensive experience writing and managing federal, state, and other grants. We can help your business prepare an effective grant application and identify collaborators at the University of Georgia to enhance your likelihood of success. We can also manage grants after they are awarded and assist in all reporting and compliance. 

Technical and Engineering Services

Our engineers and professionals provide consulting engineering services including technology evaluation, energy services, regulatory compliance assistance, life cycle assessments, and design services.

We offer scientifically-driven techno-economic analysis of products and processes to determine feasibility and assist in critical decision making for your company. We also offer complete life cycle assessment for certification compliance and comprehensive economic and environmental sustainability evaluations.

Our engineers provide basic and advanced energy audits for clients from small businesses to large industrial facilities. We can develop an energy management strategy for your organization to help lower operating costs as well as environmental impact. We offer energy modeling services to aid in efficient building design and in support of LEED certification. WE conduct applied research in Energy Informatics: analyzing, designing, and implementing information systems to increase energy efficiency.

Using our relationships with state and deferral regulatory agencies, we can assist you with permit application and post-permit compliance. In many cases, we helped businesses overcome non-compliance issues and increase productivity and profits before regulatory or punitive action is taken.

Our scientists and engineers have a long history of identifying value-added uses for waste streams and by-products. We can apply our expertise to enhance your company’s economic and environmental sustainability. 

Technology Transfer

We assist with transfer of University intellectual property to companies by matching faculty and technology to particular business needs.
