The release of a strategic plan this month marked the start of a new era for a UA unit aimed at sharing faculty technological innovations.
Tech Launch Arizona's strategic plan, "Roadmap," is a guide for the unit's current and future plans to help share UA faculty's technological innovations with those outside the university. Its goal is to advance university "discoveries into intellectual property, inventions and technology," according to the Office of Technology Transfer website.
"What we created is a framework for the changes that are occurring and will occur," said David Allen, executive director and vice president of Tech Launch. "It provides an overview for people to understand that the operation is going to be different and how it's going to be different ... It shows that this new team that has been created has the knowledge, experience and the resources to carry on the plan."
