NEI Corporation offers a service called TIPsTM – Transition Innovations to Products, which adds value to technologies that are at a nascent stage, making it more attractive for either a licensing agreement or for further investment. The TIPs process is most effective when the technology needs to be scaled to a level that a potential licensee or a corporate commercialization partner begins to gain confidence in the technology. NEI’s TIPs service is designed so that the institution’s Intellectual Property remains free and clear and is not encumbered by partnering with NEI.
From Proof-of-Concept to Products
Over the past 20 years, NEI has developed the ability to rapidly transition technologies from proof-of-concept to products. The practical market-oriented approach involves process development & scale-up, prototype demonstration, and identification & bridging of technology gaps.

This methodology has been used successfully by NEI to complete scores of transactions leading to new Advanced Materials products. Through TIPs, NEI offers it’s vast product development experience and expertise to researchers in the Advanced Materials field to help advance their technology to the next level.
