Being Green: Bayh-Dole Makes Every Day Earth Day
IP Watchdog
Normally when we discuss the impact of the Bayh-Dole Act, allowing universities and small companies to commercialize inventions made with federal support, we focus on the life sciences where the resulting new drugs and therapies dramatically improved lives for millions around the world. However, the celebration of Earth Day is an appropriate time to consider the contributions our publicly funded research organizations — partnering with an entrepreneurial private sector — make in protecting our environment.

The 10 Breakthrough Technologies of 2013
MIT Technology Review
Our definition of a breakthrough is simple: an advance that gives people powerful new ways to use technology. It could be an intuitive design that provides a useful interface or experimental devices that could allow people who have suffered brain damage to once again form memories. As a whole, this annual list is intended to not only identify which technologies you need to know about, but also to celebrate the creativity that produced them.

Toward an Ecological Model of Research and Development
The Atlantic
The belief that basic or pure research lays the foundation for applied research was fixed in science policy circles by Vannevar Bush's 1945 report on Science: The Endless Frontier. Unfortunately, his unsubstantiated beliefs have remained attractive to powerful advocates of basic research who seek funding for projects that may or may not advance innovation and economic growth. Shifting the policy agenda to recognize that applied research goals often trigger more effective basic research could accelerate both applied and basic research.

TTOs Weigh in on Social Media: Proponents and Detractors Offer Important Insights
By Danielle McCulloch
Earlier this spring, I participated on an AUTM Annual Meeting panel called "Social Media Unplugged: Is It Worth the Hype?," which explored how technology transfer offices can use social media to better position their organizations and innovations for success. To prepare for this panel, I conducted an online survey of tech transfer professionals. For those using social media in their work, the survey asked which tools they use and whether they find it helps them achieve their goals. For those not using social media, why not?

Inkjet-Printed Graphene Electrodes May Lead to Low-Cost, Large-Area, Possibly Foldable Devices
PhysOrg
Although inkjet-printed graphene has been previously demonstrated, the graphene patterns printed in a new study are about 250 times more conductive than previous patterns. The printed graphene ink is also highly tolerant to bending stresses, with the ability to withstand folding with only a slight decrease in conductivity. As the researchers explain, inkjet printing is an attractive method for printing electronic components because it is low-cost, can print large areas and can print on flexible substrates.

The New Lightest Material on Earth Might Be the Key to Cleaning Oil Spills
Fast Co.Exist
It weighs less than air, yet withstands punishment from crushing to burning without a scratch and soaks up oil spills better than today's materials. A new class of materials, carbon nanotube aerogels, is claiming title to the lightest material on Earth and, perhaps one day, among the most useful. For the last two decades, the focus has been on creating silica or polymer aerogels. But carbon nanotubes are opening up a whole new area of muscular applications, say scientists from the University of Pennsylvania.
