Leadership of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus recognize innovation and commercialization of medical and technological discoveries as a strategic priority. CU Innovations (CUI), has developed an outreach program, that focuses on the prime agents of innovation, i.e. the faculty.
The Liaison network will assist CUI in understanding the concerns and priorities of faculty as well as identifying new and promising innovations within the university prior to public disclosure, ultimately increasing the quality, quantity, and viability of invention disclosures. Additionally, the liaisons’ relationship with the office will create a conduit for CUI to connect with researchers around campus, increasing participation and engagement in commercialization and entrepreneurship activities.
