If the current trend holds, faculty at the University of Iowa will set yet another record year for licensed IP, invention disclosures, and patent applications filed in FY2015.
There were 104 patent application filings as of Feb. 28 compared with 83 last year, a 20 percent increase from FY2014; 96 disclosures compared with 71, up 26 percent; and 25 licenses and options compared with 19, up 25 percent.
All UI faculty, staff, postdocs, and students are invited to the Hawkeye Innovation Summit on April 23, 5:00-6:30pm for a reception and talk by Arthur Krieg, MD, titled "Shifting from R to D: The ABCs of translating a great scientific idea into a great startup."
Dr. Krieg's talk will cover how to identify research ideas with commercial value, and how to pitch your ideas to industry representatives. The session will include time for Q&A and a light reception for attendees.
