Patents, spin-off companies

Based on recent University media relations activities, a leading regional business publication Mass High Tech wrote a feature story detailing economic development efforts underway at URI and other Rhode Island universities. The article showed how we put results of our research to work through patents, licensing agreements and spin-off companies. The story focused on our accomplishments and quoted Vice President for Research and Economic Development Peter Alfonso and Associate Vice President for Intellectual Property Jim Petell. This article, and a shorter piece in the Providence Business News, were based on the URI press release and related materials.
