UNH will continue to open its doors to the business community and create new streams of revenue with the creation of UNH Innovation. UNH Innovation is about providing access to the outputs of the university.
“UNH Innovation will make the university a leading voice for innovation in the state,” said President Mark Huddleston. “Our history as a land-grant institution has always been one of providing access to the latest knowledge and research to solve the challenges facing New Hampshire and the world. UNH is committed to helping accelerate the state’s economy, and we believe this will help tremendously.”
UNH Innovation comprises licensing, what was once the university’s Office of Research Partnerships and Commercialization; services like the InterOperability Lab and equipment or facilities rentals; and ventures and economic development, with plans to create a mentorship program and increased opportunities for students to work directly with businesses.
