Purdue Faculty Help Each Other Learn Steps of Tech Transfer - Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

To help innovators at Purdue University convert their technology ideas into commercial endeavors, the university is running a mentoring program where faculty help other faculty. Deliberate Innovation for Faculty (DIFF) is a team of faculty members who have already had success in moving an invention into commercialization. The seven DIFF mentors come from all over the institution — the college of technology; the school of management; the schools of biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and mechanical engineering; the college of engineering; and the Homeland Security Institute. Help may include guiding research proposals or collaborations from the beginning of new projects, providing early stage discovery or startup direction and proposing funding sources, market research and business planning. http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/07/06/purdue-faculty-help-each-other-learn-steps-of-tech-transfer.aspx
