Destination 2169: Innovations for the next 150 years ready for licensing to be highlighted at Purdue Technology Showcase
Drones, cancer treatments, herbicides among leading-edge technologies on display
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Imagine it’s the year 2169. What does the world look like – and how has technology changed the everyday lives of people?
“Innovations for the Next 150 Years” will be the theme for the 2019 Purdue Technology Showcase on May 16. Purdue University and NSWC Crane researchers will exhibit their innovative advancements in materials and manufacturing, technology, agriculture and life sciences from noon to 5 p.m. before a crowd of investors, international corporate executives and entrepreneurs at the Herman and Heddy Kurz Purdue Technology Center, 1281 Win Hentschel Blvd.
The goal is to help move pioneering developments to the marketplace as quickly as possible. Each innovator will have about five minutes to present their discoveries during the fast-paced event. All of the technologies being presented are available for licensing through the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization.
“Purdue has been marking 150 Years of Giant Leaps over this past year,” said Brooke Beier, vice president of OTC. “This one-stop showcase continues to share the great stories of researchers and their technologies as we look to the next 150 years of commercialization, licensing and startups.”
