AutoHarvest Foundation Update - May 2013

AutoHarvest Foundation's ecosystem continues to grow, bringing innovators One Click Closer™ to commercialization in advanced manufacturing. Newly posted available technologies and corporate & federal agency technology needs are continually added to the AutoHarvest member marketplace. This month evaluate novel technologies added by new members: The University of Vermont, The George Washington University and Los Alamos National Lab.

The Innovation Hub curates unique knowledge based resources provided by organizations, public and private. We welcome as a new Hub member the Nanomaterial Registry. The rapid creation of nanomaterials has spurred the National Institutes of Health to sponsor the development of the Nanomaterial Registry to provide safety information on new materials. Hub member ktMINE has released its updated licensing royalty database and probes the risks and rewards of white space mapping to evaluate your market position and new opportunities.

Visit to learn more, and apply to join our Beta program. Thank you for your continued interest.

Featured New Members:

The AutoHarvest community continues to grow, bringing impressive new members from inside and outside our traditional networks. From the East Coast we welcome the George Washington University and the University of Vermont. From the West we are joined by Los Alamos National Laboratory and from the heartland we welcome PolymerOhio, Inc. into our ecosystem. Be sure to log in to and directly connect with them and discuss their impressive array of technologies and capabilities they are offering.

George Washington University

AutoHarvest is pleased to welcome the George Washington University Office of Technology Transfer.

The George Washington University Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) promotes and facilitates the transfer of GW innovations for the benefit of the university community and the public while leveraging GW resources through partnering with industry experts and entrepreneurs.

They are the bridge between in-house laboratory research and companies, entrepreneurs, and investors. Our primary aim is to connect university researchers with business enterprises, entrepreneurs, and unique external resources. OTT oversees all aspects of technology commercialization at GW.

Log on to the AutoHarvest system to view some of GWU's technology postings, such as "Dual Suspension System," "Self-Repairing and Self-Sustaining Autonomous Machines" and "Nanometer thick films to protect friction surfaces in Engine Components."

University of Vermont

AutoHarvest is pleased to welcome the University of Vermont's Office of Technology Commercialization.

The Office of Technology Commercialization understands that successful collaboration is based on the merging of cultural and intellectual objectives, as well as reasonable economic expectations.

Timely response to licensing activity is a core competency that has been developed over time and is a constant focus of their improvement efforts. Their unique networking situation enables them to combine technologies from a variety of sources. This allows the technologies to reach critical mass and increases the probability that each will achieve its full potential.

In recent years, the University of Vermont has seen a dramatic increase in its intellectual property and technology transfer activity. Out of 93 patent issued, 33 were issued in the last 5 years. Thirty-five companies have licensed patents from UVM and are commercializing the technologies, including 9 new Vermont companies.

Log on to the AutoHarvest system to view some of UVM's technology postings, such as "Adaptive Protective Cable Covering" and "Fabricating Thin-Film Crystalline Structures from Organic Compounds."

Los Alamos National Laboratory

AutoHarvest is pleased to welcome
Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Visit the technologies available section and search for the new technology postings from Los Alamos National Laboratory, in areas of direct interest to advanced manufacturing such as novel machining processes and instrumentation.

Los Alamos National Laboratory's mission is to develop and apply science and technology to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the U.S. nuclear deterrent; reduce global threats; and solve other emerging national security and energy challenges.

With energy use increasing across the nation and the world, Los Alamos National Laboratory is using its world-class scientific capabilities to enhance national energy security by developing energy sources with limited environmental impact and by improving the efficiency and reliability of the energy infrastructure. The growth of global energy demand in this century will create significant new national security challenges. Los Alamos will develop transformative new science for energy technologies and significantly enhance and extend the use of current technologies in a manner that is sustainable and that mitigates negative environmental, social, and national security consequences. Implicit is the development of the capability to measure, model, and predict (in a quantifiable manner) the impacts of energy choices on climate and their cascading effects on the environment and society.

Polymer Ohio, Inc.

AutoHarvest is pleased to welcome PolymerOhio, Inc..

Columbus based PolymerOhio is an Ohio Edison Technology Center that is focused on enhancing the polymer industry's global competitiveness and growth. PolymerOhio is a natural collaborator with AutoHarvest as we both strive to accelerate innovation for advanced manufacturing and materials.
