MeasureNet Helps UC Patent Earnings Top Region
A recent February 11th University of Cincinnati Bearcats halftime ceremony honored MeasureNet Technology's president Robert Voorhees for the company's contribution to the university's title of regional patent income leader.
UC led all universities in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana in patent income generated during 2002 with $6.5 million. Other schools ranked in the region include Indiana University ($3.8 million), Case Western Reserve University ($3.0 million), University of Kentucky ($1.5 million), and Ohio State University ($828,000). During fiscal year 2003, research enterprises at UC reached $300 million. According to the National Science Foundation, the school placed 25th nationally amongst all public universities.
The MeasureNet System is a spin-off of research performed at the university's department of chemistry in the early and mid-1990s. That research was aided by grants from NSF and the Procter and Gamble Company of Cincinnati.
