Seeing the robust potential of biomedical technologies, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) created a grant for Institutional Development Award (IDeA) state institutions called the IDeA Regional Technology Transfer Accelerator Hub Awards. NIH created four regional "hubs": Central, Northeast, Southeast and Western. The hubs provide entrepreneurship and commercialization training focused on health technology transfer best practices, and tools to advance biomedical technologies in states often overlooked by investors and partners. Each hub is led by a private small business that collaborates with a consortium of universities. In this session, we'll discuss the larger IDeA project, what's to come, and how universities and partners can get involved. We'll also present ideas, platforms and marketplaces being developed to access this untapped base of technologies.
