This Tuesday, we hosted our annual Patent Awards event. The awards program is our way of celebrating the drive for innovation and research at Clemson University. At this year’s ceremony, we honored researchers in a variety of areas including agriculture, bioengineering, and chemistry, who either received a patent or commercialized a technology in 2018.
This past year, we added 16 issued patents to our growing portfolio of 166 issued patents available for licensing. Among the patents issued to the inventors were technologies that improve building construction, reduce biofouling in water systems, and inhibit corrosion of metal substrates. In addition to the patent awards, 7 Inventor’s Club Awards were given to innovators who commercialized a technology in 2018. We were also honored to recognize KIYATEC, Inc. for being selected to participate in the exclusive University Innovation and Entrepreneurship Showcase that took place on Capitol Hill on April 10.
Congratulations to all the inventors for their hard work and significant contributions to the Clemson University research enterprise.
