Colorado State University generated $338.4 million in research expenditures in Fiscal Year 2017, a boost of nearly 2 percent. CSU researchers were also issued a record 66 patents in that same timeframe, an indication of the university’s strength in innovation.
CSU Ventures has played a strong role in this progress. The office negotiated 44 agreements with companies to license CSU technologies. In addition, researchers filed 101 invention disclosures and were issued 66 patents, nearly double the number from the previous fiscal year. Licensing revenue for FY 17 totaled more than $3 million, and CSU Ventures also launched six new startup companies.
“We’re continuing to evolve, and to support the university as best we can,” said Todd Headley, president of CSU Ventures. “I’m really encouraged by CSU faculty and industry engagement. We continue to see excellent participation.”
