Study: Patenting Their Discoveries Does Not Pay Off for Most Universities
The New York Times
Universities try to cash in on discoveries — gene splicing, brain chemistry and computer-chip design — but the great majority of them fail to turn their research into a source of income, according to a new study from the Brookings Institution. Research universities have technology transfer offices that make thousands of business deals annually for the use of their patents. But in any given year, at about seven of eight universities, the resulting revenue funneled into university budgets is not even enough to cover the cost of running that office, said the study's author, Walter D. Valdivia.

Rutgers University Engineers Test Robots on Bridge in New Jersey
Lehigh Valley
A bridge in Pohatcong Township, N.J., spanning the Pohatcong Creek is getting a high-tech inspection from robots operated by a team of scientists, some from Rutgers University. One robot hovered like a helicopter as it visually inspected the surface of the bridge north of the municipal building. An aptly named thumper made a resounding thud that shook the bridge as it determined its capacity. A third robot can navigate to the location of a crack, drill a small hole and inject material that permeates the internal crack.

Cities Across the Country Are Vying to Be the Next Silicon Valley
VEGAS INC
Persuading tech companies to move to Las Vegas can be a tough sell. The valley has a budding geek scene but sorely lacks educated workers, investment cash and job growth. UNLV is a research lightweight, and the few technical students it does produce often bolt town.
