CIO Insight    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
North Carolina State University had a challenge. It needed a new process to monetize its treasure trove of scientific advancements and university-invented technologies by matching these with potential research partners and sponsors. Any organization sitting on reams of intellectual property will learn from the experiences of Billy Houghteling, Director of the Office of Technology Transfer at North Carolina State University. His office is responsible for transferring University-developed innovations to the marketplace and interacting with partners. "Our portfolio is very large, very diverse and it's understaffed," says Houghteling. "We have a hard time managing the intellectual property assets we have." More

Wakeham's lecture was part of the nationwide lecture series being organised jointly by the British High Commission and the Indian Institute of Science, to mark its centenary year. More

Stimulating science
The Chicago Sun-Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nicole Tuttle, a University of Chicago student earning her doctorate in chemistry, is conducting the kind of pure research most corporations gave up a decade ago and which local academic institutions are seeking to commercialize faster than ever before. In Chicago's case, the research won't lead to any immediate commercial gadgets or medical treatments; indeed, the work could take decades to reveal its best uses. More

Commercialization: Promises, challenges
Northern Nevada Business Weekly    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

No one thinks that widespread commercialization of research from Nevada laboratories will be either easy or quick. More

In their element: The science of science
The Independent    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Scientists have been examining their own careers for centuries, but only relatively recently as a separate field of research. This intellectual analysis, called "scientometrics," emerged in the 1960s, and is essentially the "science of science." It posits questions such as, "How is productivity changing?" or "How many researchers do we need?" and now, "Are scientific discoveries getting more difficult?" More
