NC State ranked one of nation’s elite technology transfer universities

“Research to Renewal: Advancing University Tech Transfer,” was published by Heartland Forward, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization focused on improving economic performance in the central United States. The analysis evaluated which American universities are most proficient at creating new knowledge; ingraining it in their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates; and transferring it both to new and existing enterprises.

“Research and discovery have always been at the heart of NC State’s mission. But the effectiveness of how this university moves that knowledge into the marketplace through new startups, patents, products, treatments and our graduates is truly remarkable,” said Mladen Vouk, NC State’s vice chancellor for research. “NC State’s unique technology transfer ecosystem benefits students with unsurpassed experiences, efficiently moves research from the lab to the community, and provides a tremendous economic impact for North Carolina.”
