Innovation and discovery have always been a proud part of the University of Minnesota's history. Our Innovations event celebrates the achievements of U of M researchers and the breakthroughs that result from their efforts. These innovations provide growth opportunities for businesses, benefit the public good, and improve quality of life in Minnesota and beyond.
Hosted by the Office of the Vice President for Research, this annual event celebrates researchers whose work has been patented, licensed to a company or used to form a startup.
This year, we recognize 134 inventors, representing 13 colleges, who have earned 65 patents and 74 licenses in fiscal 2011.
