TEDCO Technology Partnering Showcase 2003

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) Office of Technology Transfer and the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) presented a Federal Laboratory Partnership Program:

Applications for New Communications Technology: Innovation and Imagination

  • Thursday, September 4, 2003
  • 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • The JHU/APL Kossiakoff Conference and Education Center

Highlights from the Event

Attended by more than 160 people including potential licensees, legislators, commercial representatives, investors and researchers, the event has generated very positive feedback. The goal of the showcase was to promote business development through the commercialization of APL technology. Before the closing of the event, several opportunities surfaced and over the next several months, many more are expected.

APL was the site of the first TEDCO Showcase in 2000 and it continues to have TEDCO as an economic development partner in Maryland. APL and TEDCO used the September 4 event as an opportunity to sign a formal 3-year extension to their current Memorandum of Understanding - a pledge to work together to bring new technologies to local industry. In a letter from Maryland Senator Mikulski that was read at the showcase, Mikulski said, "This unique cooperative effort is exactly what we need to advance the application of new innovations to the nation's technology needs of the 21st century."

According to a survey conducted by TEDCO:

    - Representatives from over 60 technology-based businesses were in attendance.
    - 57% of all those in attendance indicated the technology focus attracted them to the event, and for 70% of the businesses - this was the first showcase they had ever attended.
    - 72% of all attendees, 74% of businesses heard of an opportunity or technology about which they wanted more information.
