4 Innovations through Partnerships Universities & Colleges Large Companies Established Small Businesses Spinoff Small Businesses Investors, VCs, Angels Innovation Ecosystem

5 Best Practices Leadership from the top of University Deep collaboration with community, industry and investors Culture of Entrepreneurship and Commercialization Investment in Innovation Infrastructure 5 Commercialization of University Research

6 Innovation Definition from ‘A Strategy for American Innovation’ “ Innovation is the development of novel products, services, and processes for the benefit of society”

7 Role of NSF in the Innovation Ecosystem From Discovery to Innovation through Translation Research – research that moves an idea past the basic discovery stage 7 Leads to technology platforms Requires the integration of multi-disciplines Is developed in collaboration with industry The innovation process is often non-linear
