UC Berkeley, UCSF and Stanford join forces to help commercialize university innovations
Date:2/22/2013

BERKELEY, SAN FRANCISCO, PALO ALTO The University of California, Berkeley, UC San Francisco and Stanford University are collaborating on an educational program aimed at commercializing university research and fostering innovation locally and nationally, thanks to a three-year, $3.75 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The "I-Corps Node: NSF Bay Area Regional I-Node Program" is one of three new Innovation Corps (or I-Corps) Nodes that the NSF is establishing across the United States, the NSF announced yesterday, Feb. 21, 2013. The goal of I-Corps is to increase the impact of NSF-funded research by setting up innovation ecosystems within universities that will train the next generation of entrepreneurs, encourage partnerships between academia and industry, and commercialize science and technology. The resources of the program are available to NSF principal investigators and their graduate students, as well as local and national startups.

The San Francisco Bay Area/Silicon Valley Node is coordinated by UC Berkeley in collaboration with UCSF and Stanford University. The node is headed by Richard Lyons, dean of UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Blank, entrepreneurship lecturer at Berkeley and Stanford. Andr Marquis, executive director of the Haas School's Lester Center for Entrepreneurship, serves the role of Node manager.

"Our three universities are the source of so many ground-breaking discoveries that can be put into service of society and this grant will allow us to develop next-generation processes to tap them and bring them to market," says Berkeley-Haas Dean Rich Lyons. "Getting better at this means more jobs, more economic value and better lives."

Lyons and Blank are joined by co-investigators Erik Lium, PhD, assistant vice chancellor of Innovation, Technology & Alliances at UCSF, and Riitta Katila, associate professor of Management Science & Engineering at
