Kentucky announces formation of Commonwealth Commercialization Center (C3)

In early August, the University of Tennessee Research Foundation joined with the other 13 Southeastern Conference institutions to launch a new platform named the Southeast Executives-on-Roster (Southeast XOR).

As part of the launch, the University of Kentucky’s Office of Technology Commercialization agreed to serve as the initial administrative arm for the initiative, but that is a responsibility that is to rotate annually.

Recently, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin announced a complementary in-state effort named the Commonwealth Commercialization Center (C3). Led by the Cabinet for Economic Development’s KY Innovation office, the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville, C3 will provide resources to all the state’s public universities and colleges.
