New White Paper From Spotlight Innovation Focuses on Evolution of Efforts to Transform University Research into Profitable Business Ventures

WEST DES MOINES, IA / ACCESSWIRE / August 27, 2014 / Spotlight Innovation, Inc. (OTCQB: STLT) today published a white paper reporting the progress and growth of the transfer and commercialization of university-generated research and intellectual property (IP). Midwest Universities are Cultivating IP Commercialization Success explores how the changing policies of the federal government in conjunction with innovations from the academic and business communities are creating new opportunities for Universities, researchers and other stakeholders to turn transformative ideas into profitable business ventures.

Cristopher Grunewald, President and CEO of Spotlight Innovation said, "The relatively recent emphasis from the federal government on commercialization of federally-funded intellectual property is creating new licensing agreements, start-up companies and impactful products at an accelerating pace. The Midwest, with a rich history in research and academia, is well-positioned to drive IP commercialization efforts that will have a positive economic impact, and in the healthcare space, have a positive impact on health and wellbeing."

White paper excerpt:

Working together, research institutions, private-sector entities and government are advancing efforts to develop innovative and substantive commercialization programs. And these efforts are reaping rewards, driving an uptick in technology transfer from universities to industry, and ultimately to the public.
