WEST LAFAYETTE -

Purdue University is being recognized for its technology transfer partnership with the United States military. 

The Purdue Research Foundation will receive the 2016 Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer's Midwest Regional Partnership Award. The accolade comes after the university's work with the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division.

"Purdue has one of the most expansive technology transfer programs in the U.S., covering all sectors of our economy," said Chad Pittman, vice president of the Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization and a major in the U.S. Army Reserves. "We are honored to assist our armed forces across all branches."

Purdue Research Foundation and Crane began collaborating in 2014 after signing an intermediary agreement. The contract allowed each institution to keep ownership of its intellectual properties while marketing Crane's innovations alongside Purdue's through the Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization.

The award will be presented on August 11 at the 2016 FLC Midwest and Southeast Regional Meeting in Charleston, South Carolina.
