FSU INNOVATORS HONORED FOR EFFORTS TO COMMERCIALIZE RESEARCH

Date: 4/6/2016


Last night, Florida State University's 11th Annual Innovators' Reception highlighted individuals who patented their research discoveries in the past year, including researchers who have taken significant steps on the commercialization path.

 "Commercialization of an invention is an arduous process that requires persistence, but it is a process that provides the potential for significant benefits to those involved and to the world," said Brent Edington, director of the FSU Office of Commercialization.  "The process can also produce value to local economies through job creation and economic diversification."

 To help convey the accomplishments of those being honored, three videos premiered during the event showcasing the stories of different researchers and their teams who have achieved significant milestones in the commercialization process.
