RCI Student Operator Develops CanopyApp

RCI recognizes student operator and Junior Computer Science major Dexter Richards for his outstanding work in developing, designing, and testing CanopyApp.  Sponsored by Annette Schloss of the UNH Earth Systems Research Center, CanopyApp is a multi-platform app that measures forest canopy cover in photographs taken by users.  The application works by masking colors specified by the user and then generating a percentage of canopy cover.  Designed for use by foresters, or anyone interested in canopy density, the app serves as a digital substitute for, or supplement to, a hand-h

“Excuse me, can you repeat that? What does that mean?”

Technology transfer is like any other field with a host of its own unique terms and acronyms, all designed to confuse and intimidate those not in the know.  Confusion is not really the intention, but it's the look I often receive when one of these terms slips into a conversation.  Particularly when speaking with people outside UNHInnovation (UNHI), the conversation is frequently interrupted by a request for clarification.  In an effort to bridge this gap and get everyone on the same page, we’ll start small and over the course of several blogs begin to create a glossary for so

UNH to Receive Scanning Electron Microscope

UNH has recently received a NSF Major Research Instrumentation award for a new Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB-SEM).  The unit will be housed at the University Instrumentation Center (UIC) in the basement of Parsons Hall.  The grant is a result of a collaborative proposal developed by investigators from Mechanical Engineering, Earth Sciences, Materials Science, and the UIC.  Expect to hear more about this in February 2014.

IP Matters in Every Deal

I attended the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Licensing Executive Society (LES), held in Philadelphia from September 22-25. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier blog post, LES is an international association of members with an interest in the transfer of technology, or licensing of intellectual property (IP) rights - from technical know-how and patented inventions to software, copyrights and trademarks.
