LAWRENCE -- A University of Kansas professor has been selected to receive a Fulbright scholar award for the 2002-2003 academic year.

Prasad Gogineni, Deane E. Ackers distinguished professor of electrical engineering and computer science, was commended for his impressive accomplishments in the field of radar systems and remote sensing. As part of his Fulbright Award, he will conduct research at the University of Tasmania Antarctic Cooperative Research Center in Hobart, Tasmania. Gogineni will work with Dr. Victoria Lytle at the center. The research involves some parts of the Information Technology Research project, an $8.7 million National Science Foundation and NASA research project led by Gogineni, and a new project, funded by NASA, to develop a radar to measure thickness of snow over sea ice. Results from Gogineni's research have helped provide a clearer picture of global climate change.

Gogineni plans to go to Australia at the end of July and return to Lawrence in mid-December. He will be on sabbatical for the duration of the academic year and plans to spend the remaining time in Lawrence conducting research related to the Information Technology Research project.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
