Final faculty research-sharing set for today


From KU News
By Emily Ryan

LAWRENCE — The final Red Hot Research session of the year, intended to bring together University of Kansas scholars from all disciplines, will begin at 4 p.m. today in the The Commons at Spooner Hall.

The format of these sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. Each installment will feature six faculty members, speaking for six minutes each. Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. The sessions are intended to provide faculty members with a venue for cross-disciplinary partnering and exploration.

Presenters are as follows:
Sherrie Tucker, professor of American Studies: "Improvisation, Bodies, and Difference"

Marie Grace Brown, assistant professor of history: "Documenting Desire"

Norman Akers, associate professor of visual art: "Border Crossing"

Dennis Domer, project director, architecture, design and planning: "Intergenerational Communities"

Gary Minden, professor of electrical engineering & computer science: "Energy."

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.
