UNHInnovation (UNHI)

Pura vida from Costa Rica!

Hello! My name is Mauricio and during the month of April, I was a visiting scholar at UNHInnovation.

Creative Works Symposium at UNH

As a UNH graduate student, I have been interning with UNHInnovation (UNHI) to learn more about copyright law and the future of intellectual property. My research has culminated in a graduate studies project, a Creative Works Symposium. The goal of this project is to better inform faculty and students about the impact of intellectual property rights on universities and to answer questions faculty or students may have in regards to intellectual property, including copyright and trademark laws.

Commercialization? Not me!

One of the elements of my job that I really enjoy is presenting to UNH faculty, staff, and students about technology transfer. What is it? Why do we do it? How do we do it? Over the years, a common reaction to these questions has been:

“Why do I need to care about commercialization?”

“I’m not interested in it, and it’s not right for my work nor for me.”

Rather than being a conversation stopper, this creates the perfect opening for a discussion about why commercialization is absolutely right for you.

A few basics first and then I’ll get to “why you:”

The UNH Instrumentation Center Hosts Open House

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 2014 Innovators’ Dinner

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.

Including a Commercialization Plan in Your Next Grant Proposal

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.

Seeking Partners to Commercialize One-Step Process for Synthesizing Quaterrylene

What is Quaterrylene?

Quaterrylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon (essentially a small piece of graphene) with many applications in organic photovoltaics, organic thin-film transistors, and organic light emitting diodes due to its photophysical and semiconducting properties. 

Welcoming Cassie Simmons and Andrew Schmid to UNHI!

UNHInnovation (UNHI) has worked with the UNH School of Law since 2010 to bring law school student interns into our office to gain technology transfer experience within a higher education setting.

This year, we are very pleased to welcome Cassie Simmons and Andrew Schmid to the office. Andrew and Cassie started on June 2, 2014 and will work with us over the course of the next year. Both interns have just completed their 1L year (first year of law school).
