Columbia S&TV


The mission at Columbia University's Science & Technology Ventures (S&TV) is to evaluate, protect, and license Columbia intellectual property, increase private sector funding for research and development, encourage technology transfer, and distribute income from these activities among Columbia entities and faculty. Science & Technology Ventures is the organization within Columbia University that interacts with industry. S&TV started in 1982 as the Office of Science and Technology Development and was one of the first university technology transfer offices set up after passage of the Bayh-Dole law. The early activities of the office were primarily licensing and setting up collaborative research arrangements with industry. In mid-1994 the name was changed to Columbia Innovation Enterprise to better reflect the previous activities of the group. The name was changed again, in 200, to Science & Technology Ventures.

The major activities of S&TV are:

Identify and patent new inventions and copyright materials including software and       multimediaware.
Interact with industry to set up collaborative research agreements.
Advise industry of new inventions and negotiate license agreements.
Advise companies on availability of new incubator space in Audubon Business and Technology Center.

University of New Hampshire

University of New Hampshire Law School, an ABA-accredited law school, is centrally located in Concord, the state capital of New Hampshire. Its relatively small student body is enviably diverse and represents thirty-two countries. In addition to offering, for over twenty-five years, basic legal training leading to the J.D., UNH also awards advanced degrees, diplomas and certificates in education law and intellectual property -- subjects of ever-increasing national and global importance. Graduates work for government agencies, businesses and law firms in over fifty nations.

University of New Hampshire Law School, formerly Franklin Pierce Law Center, was founded in 1973 partly in reaction to two shortcomings in U.S. legal education: its failure to effectively teach professional skills and its neglect of intellectual property law - then an obscure specialty and now recognized as the engine of economic growth. The Law School maintains its reputation as one of the nation's leading law schools for the study of intellectual property.  The UNH Law School continues to be recognized for its innovative methods for preparing lawyers within a solid academic program. To help ensure that you will feel comfortable practicing in the information age, you will learn advanced electronic trial presentation skills in a state-of-the-art courtroom. Looking toward the future, we are building an addition outfitted with a technologically enhanced smart classroom.
