UH has been a great place to foster collaboration, and develop innovative and commercial technologies in many different ways. The Office of Intellectual Property and the Bauer College of Business have done a great job matching faculty holding patents with business school students to help determine the potential commercialization of the patent. We also have a unique facility space available at the Innovation Park for startup companies.
Besides the support in fostering collaboration and infrastructure for development of novel technologies, UH has been providing additional funds for UH startup companies and faculty members to support and bridge the gap of laboratory investigations and actual commercialization of innovations.
