The Georgia Tech Polymer Network welcomes Professor Richard McCullough from Harvard University on December 8, 2014. Professor McCullough will present a lecture entitled, “From Discovery to Start-up: A Journey and Status Report on Printable Electronics and Promoting Corporate Partnerships and a Start-up Culture in Universities”

We are entering the new era of printed electronics where engineered organic electronic materials can be used as printable transistors and solar cells, are critical materials in the future of lighting and displays, and new materials are leading to functional printable metals in 3-D printing. Discoveries made in our lab that have led to the commercialization of university-based research in printable electronics will be presented. Universities are working harder than ever to develop rich innovation ecosystems that promote start-ups and new corporate partnerships. In this talk, I will also present experiences in the building of and success of university innovation ecosystems with examples from Harvard University and Carnegie Mellon University.
