The Center for Research Innovation

Northeastern University’s Center for Research Innovation (CRI) is the University’s IP management and licensing office.  This includes:

  • Invention disclosure
  • Filing for provisional and full patents
  • Technology licensing to corporations
  • Technology licensing back to inventor/entrepreneurs.

Example: Discovering new antiobiotics at Novobiotic Pharmaceuticals



CRI also hosts a number of University-wide  showcases for faculty and student inventions.
