Access iBridge Network
“Linking ideas & innovation” is the motto of the iBridge organization. “While traditional search engines provide a means for looking for information, the iBridgeSM Network provides a public, centralized source for unbiased information about early stage technologies and inventions. Our objective is to drive transparency and access to university developed innovations that are available today as well as to field experts, ideas and information. Through the iBridgeSM Network, researchers and those seeking innovations can easily search for and obtain the resources they need.” Non-members exploring this site can view the brief descriptions of inventions/innovations by subject or by organization, and see which of these organizations form special communities in iBridge. A free sign-up allows the user to e-mail for more information about the entries. Submissions include technologies that can be licensed, research opportunities, material transfer agreements, and laboratory and equipment availability. The provocative and informative blogs here are accessible to all who visit the site. iBridge is funded in large part by the Kauffman Foundation.
