T2U Innovation Series: Florida State University
NASA’s Technology Transfer University (T2U) program gives undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work with NASA-developed technology. While it is typically implemented in business courses, it can be applied to engineering, writing, visual design, and other areas of study.
This webinar series features firsthand experiences and best practices from distinguished instructors at colleges and universities around the country. These instructors have valuable perspectives about the educational benefits of working with NASA-developed technology and an understanding of the entrepreneurial value of leveraging these NASA IP resources to start tech-based companies.
