The UNH Instrumentation Center (UIC) held an open house in October to celebrate the opening of UNH’s new Imaging Core facility, and to spread the word about the recent acquisition of a Tescan Lyra Focused Ion Beam - Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB-SEM).
The UIC was established at UNH in 1973 in response to the challenges of acquiring, operating, and maintaining costly scientific equipment. The center offers state-of-the-art instrumentation for both research and educational purposes, and provides other institutions, agencies, and industries with access to the equipment.
UNHInnovation hosted the annual Innovators’ Dinner on October 9th to celebrate the intellectual property achievements of the past year. Faculty, staff, and students gathered in Huddleston Hall to recognize the collective hard work that resulted in 124 license agreements, 68 innovation disclosures, six patents filed, six patents issued, two trademarks registered, over $500,000 in royalty income, and upcoming initiatives geared towards entrepreneurial creation, development, and support.
This summer, UNHInnovation (UNHI) had the opportunity to host a roundtable discussion at the regional NORDP (National Organization of Research Development Professionals) meeting held at UNH. Our discussion was loosely themed “Commercialization, Technology Transfer, and Innovation,” all favorite topics of our office.
