Physics Validation of physics projects

  1. Aug 30, 2016 #1
    Hello,

    I have a slightly awkward question: what if someone has a great new engineering/physics project which he thinks might work, however he needs a team of specialists in order to validate it and to assess its feasibility? I've heard that many universities have some kind of "technology transfer office" which allows researchers to propose new technological business ideas, however I think that in almost all cases you need to belong to the university in order for the office to even consider your ideas.... is there therefore a similar system of project assessment for physics or engineering "inventors" who are not currently affiliated with any university?

    Thanks,

    G

    For an engineering-style invention that needs a specialist to evaluate it, you can just find an expert consultant, do an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), and pay a consulting fee to get a feasibility analysis. :smile:
