Laboratory for Accelerating Innovation Proposed
A partnership, currently composed of the NCSU Department of Computer Science, the
The Laboratory would focus on market-pull, need-driven innovation by assembling the diverse requisite domain experts from university faculty to create a solution. This strategy contrasts with the typical technology push approach used by most universities for technology transfer. It will have similarities to the Media Lab at MIT, but will be problem driven rather than technology driven. As part of the Laboratory, students would be taught the process of innovation, e.g., as in CSC 485 Innovating in Technology, http://www2.acs.ncsu.edu/reg_records/crs_cat/CSC.html#CSC485
Companies interested in joining this partnership or learning more about the laboratory should contact Dr. Alan Tharp (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 15.
