For the past few years, the University of South Florida has ranked as one of the top U.S. universities when it comes to the number of patents granted.
As a result, the school is one of only three dozen institutes nationwide to be recognized as an “Innovation Corps Site” by the National Science Foundation. That means USF will help inventors, not just from the university but around the region, learn how to turn their ideas into potential products. We’ll take a look at what this means – as well as meet an inventor being helped by the effort – on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
