Fall 2023: Colgate Team Attends NSF-Funded SUITED Workshop

In October 2023, three Colgate representatives — Carolyn Strobel-Larsen and Travis Millman from E&I, and Assistant Professor of Computer Science Noah Apthorpe — participated in a three-day NSF-funded conference at Union College focused on supporting technology, innovation, and partnerships (TIP) activities at primarily undergraduate institutions. Workshops, keynotes, and advising meetings covered topics such as commercialization pathways, NSF funding opportunities, intellectual property considerations, and regional infrastructure. The learnings from this workshop are being applied to building out initial offerings and infrastructure as part of Research Into Action.
