The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has created a new online site to promote research happening through the college’s Center for Innovation and Commercialization.
The information includes data on seminal research, inventions and other scientific discoveries happening on campus. UALR researchers hope the access will lead to commercialization for economic development purposes.
Malcolm Glover with our content partner, KUAR-FM 89 News, reports:
Glediana Rexha, the director of technology transfer for the center, says the site is expected to draw investors seeking to license university research.
“[The site] is for anybody who has an idea that is doing research here on campus and they think that society might benefit from it,” said Rexha. “It is also for anybody who may be working on research in future that basically could turn into commercial opportunities. If a company from the outside has some sort of sponsored research that they want to have done, then they can come here and see the potential opportunities to work with the resources that we have.
Rexha says the site now offers a list of technologies available for licensing, divided into seven categories – biotechnology, coatings, electronics, energy, engineering, medicine, and nanomaterials. Click here for more information on the new portal.
