This is done by technology value-enhancement and commercialization, including accelerating start-up businesses, expanding private-sector engagements, facilitating multi-institutional partnerships (locally, nationally and internationally), supporting development of an entrepreneurial culture in the university, and improving the technology-development and commercialization ecosystem of our region.
