Inventors, university representatives and the research foundation board of directors gathered Tuesday at the Madren Conference Center for a reception honoring Clemson University’s top inventors and 2014 patent recipients.
Hosted by the Clemson Inventor’s Club and CURF, the event recognized researchers who were named inventors on patents that issued in 2014. The United States Patent and Trademark Office issued 13 patents to Clemson University in 2014, adding to the current portfolio of 152 issued patents.
In addition to the patent recognition, the event featured a presentation by Roger Schonewald, Manager of Technology Programs with GE Power and Water located in Greenville, SC, titled “Technology and Innovation at GE Power and Water.”
Formed in November 2013, the Clemson Inventor’s Club recognizes Clemson’s most active inventors and faculty entrepreneurs across colleges and disciplines and provides opportunities for them to connect and share ideas with each other and others in the intellectual property and commercialization sectors.
