U open for business … business research, that is


The University of Minnesota is becoming more inviting to businesses seeking research help - collaborations that can help the school as federal research funding faces cuts.  The U's new Minnesota Innovation Partnership will simplify licensing agreements with companies, doing away with the haggling over contracts that has hampered business investment at the state's public research university… Shaye Mandle, a vice president at LifeScience Alley, a Minnesota-based trade association, said the initiative will remove hurdles for members interested in teaming up with the U. LifeScience Alley's 640 members include Medtronic, Boston Scientific, the Mayo Clinic and the U itself.
