AutoHarvest Foundation Update - September 2013

The AutoHarvest ecosystem is increasingly energized as the user and member base search, discover, connect and transact around intellectual property solutions for advanced manufacturing technologies. Over the summer and during the fall, we have exhibited at and participated in events sponsored by our industry partners showcasing advances in military, personal and autonomous vehicles. We also participated in events focused on energy storage and lightweight materials.

Also this summer, AutoHarvest Innovation Advisory Council Chairman, William Coughlin, President of Ford Global Technologies was named “Entrepreneur of the Year” for southeast Michigan by Automation Alley. Certainly AutoHarvest has benefited from Bill’s out-of-the box vision and actions.

Featured members this month include the U.S. Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SPAWAR), Covisint, Michigan State University and Northern Arizona University.

Our Innovation Hub continues to expand its array of smart tools to help innovators and commercializers accelerate product development. This month we are delighted to announce that leading intellectual property publisher, IAM has joined and provided access to important databases and a compelling article titled "Licensing in the Age of Open Innovation and Collaboration". Telematics expert Mutual Mobile provides an insightful trend report about the evolving connected vehicle platforms and Innovation Management has provided a piece to help deal doers close deals and build lasting relationships entitled “Negotiating Win-Win Strategic Innovation Partnerships”.
