More than 200 innovators participated in a live-stream event and virtual happy hour to celebrate their achievements in fiscal year 2020. The limitations of social gatherings due to the coronavirus pandemic prompted UF Innovate | Tech Licensing to find new ways to honor University of Florida innovators. Instead of an in-person Standing InnOvation, Tech Licensing honored inventors in a live-stream event Tuesday, followed by a virtual happy hour.
“Despite the challenges we’re all facing UF Innovate had an incredible year,” said Jim O’Connell, director of UF Innovate, as he opened the live-stream event. “We had record numbers of invention disclosures, record numbers of deals, and we have the No. 1 incubator in the world.”Learn more about Inventors Honored at Virtual Standing InnOvation Event.
