Ohio trying to capitalize on university research

Oct 11, 2012

Ohio Governor John Kasich has said he wants Ohio's public universities to do more to capitalize on the results of their research work. That's something Miami University started several years ago on their own and other schools are getting on board too.

The Technology Transfer and Commercialization Task Force is recommending expanding college entrepreneurial programs; fostering stronger links between research universities and the business sector; and eliminating intellectual property barriers that can deter universities and and companies from partnering.

You'll find a link to what the task force calls the "first-ever comprehensive report on improving statewide commercialization efforts" here.
