UW reports increase in tech licensing

Those Huskies are seeing more and more of their tech innovations fuel start-ups, according to the University of Washington’s technology transfer office.

Licensing agreements and options grew to 198 in 2007 from 153 the previous year, or 29 percent, UW TechTransfer said in a statement Wednesday.

Some 11 companies were spawned from UW technology, one more than last year. Many of them were in the health sciences and energy technology fields.

The startups include EnerG2, which seeks to build super-efficient energy cells for use in hybrid vehicles using nano-materials. Another is CorazonX, which is developing technology to detect coronary artery disease.
