Science means innovation
Date:4/2/2012

tivities at the three primary stages of innovation: (1) Making discoveries through industrially relevant fundamental research, (2) Creating new technology companies, and (3) Moving useful technology into the marketplace.

Basic research is at the core of NSF's mission, with the agency providing $5.6 billion for fundamental science and engineering to 11,000 of our nation's colleges and universities. One mechanism NSF supports to enhance basic research in partnership with industry is the Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program. Richard Haber, site director of the Ceramic, Composite, and Optical Materials Center at Rutgers University, highlighted work from the I/UCRC program.

Professor Haber spoke to how I/UCRCs conduct cutting-edge fundamental research relevant to its industry and end-user members. He cited examples of economic benefits through the successes of a New Jersey-based startup company called Solidia Technologies, which produces a new kind of concrete with a negative carbon footprint.

Neil Kane, president of Illinois Partners is an industry mentor for the Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program. This past year, he has been mentoring an I-Corps team led by Professor Yi Lu of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, helping establish a company that will further develop an innovative point-of-care medical diagnostic device. The I-Corps program was very helpful in our developing a winning commercial strategy. Our startup company GlucoSentient's chances for success are much higher due to the commercial analysis done with the I-Corps curriculum," said Kane.

Stephen Spoonamore, CEO and Chairman of ABSMaterials, Inc., shared his company's experiences as a beneficiary of NSF's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

"The NSF SBIR funding that ABSMaterials has received is allowing innovations in water quality to be validated, fielded and placed into the service of American community nee
