To connect local business with university and other public and private technology transfer opportunities, Indiana University hosts technology showcases around the state. On March 27th, I was pleased to co-host the most recent showcase at the Bloomington campus with Ron Walker, President of the Bloomington Economic Development Corporation.
The showcase featured patent presentations from Naval Surface Warfare Center-Crane Division engineers and was sponsored by the Bloomington Technology Partnership and IU.
Over 50 participants reviewed seven new technology opportunities ranging from reconfigurable signal simulation systems to automated project management systems. The goal of the showcase was achieved as several private sector entrepreneurs connected with researchers and consultants. We may see some of these technologies being produced in Hoosier manufacturing facilities.
Keep an eye on the Innovate Indiana website for future regional showcases.
