University of Colorado at Boulder
As illustrated above, the University of Colorado at Boulder may leverage the capabilities of its robust testing facilities, such as the Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory, to create intellectual property through a patenting plan focused on optimizing structural design. Large construction and engineering firms would most likely welcome teaming with Boulder via patent licensing agreements, thereby gaining access to the patented civil engineering technology developed at the University's testing facilities, and using those patents to seize marketplace opportunities.
