The UCAR Foundation has engaged in technology transfer and commercialization for NCAR and UCAR scientists, engineers, educators, and other specialists since 1986.

The foundation is responsible for licensing technology directly to commercial companies. We also invest in business development as a means of bringing the fruits of NCAR|UCAR research to society. Our efforts amplify the benefits of publicly supported science and establish independent sources of revenue to help support further research at NCAR|UCAR. These efforts provide important benefits to the public, protecting lives and property and promoting economic growth.
