Better World Project

Promoting public understanding of how academic research and technology transfer benefits society, the Better World Project archives and shares case studies that highlight technologies that impact our lives. By raising awareness, we hope to attract resources vital to the discovery and commercialization process. Sharing academic research and technology transfer partnerships that are delivering real-life solutions worldwide can inspire others to engage and support the process in their own communities.

Arsenic-free drinking water in Africa, meningitis vaccines, malaria treatments, hands-free wheelchair operation, sinkhole detection and devices to save lives of premature babies are among hundreds of discoveries that highlight the far-reaching impact of technology transfer. Read more…
