    The University of Illinois Research Park is highlighted in this month’s issue of Illinois Business Leader as one of the biggest hubs in Illinois for innovation and technological advancement. The article discusses the roles of the University of Illinois Research Park and Champaign-Urbana in the growing influence of the Midwest has in the areas of STEM.

    Laura Frerichs, Director of the Research Park, was interviewed for the August issue of Illinois Business Leader. Frerichs discusses the success of the park and how it has changed and grown into a leader of AgTech. Frerichs sites many of the large companies in Champaign as leaders for the Research Park’s growth such as John Deere, Syngenta, Agrible, and many more.

    Not only are these companies helping the Research Park progress, but the University plays a big role in the success of the park as well. “The University of Illinois has a powerful combination of being both elite and large, one of the top five engineering schools in the United States, but also one of the largest engineering schools in the United States,” Frerichs states. The Research Park takes advantage of this by employing over 700 students. “The businesses are grooming the students to become a pipeline of future talent.” This is just the beginning for the Research Park as it continues to grow.

    The Economist recently featured Research Park company, PSYONIC for their work transforming lives and fostering innovation. Recent breakthroughs in 3D printing have lowered barriers and have enabled the creation of simple and functional prosthetics like the ones PSYONIC creates.

    In 2011, Ivan Owen, a design pioneer, uploaded a YouTube clip of his self built "mechanical hand." After viewers saw this video, it became an extremely important artifact in the history of manufacturing prosthetics. He partnered with Richard Van As, a finger amputee from South Africa to create a set of artificial fingers. They soon developed a child-sized prosthetic that was later tested on a South African boy.

    In April, researchers at the University of Illinois revealed an algorithm that controls the flow of electricity sent through the device to the wearer's nerve endings when the prosthetic limb comes in contact with a physical surface. "We want users to be able to reliably feel things as delicate as a child's hand" Aadeel Akhtar, the device's creator says. As these technologies develop along with the 3D pringer, people with limb differences will benefit from renewed feelings in the near future.

    Illinois Public Media made a very special trip to the Research Park on Tuesday, September 25 to broadcast their radio show, The 21st, live from the EnterpriseWorks incubator. The broadcast discussed startup culture in the Champaign-Urbana area, focusing on promising innovation from student entrepreneurs and startups within the incubator.

     

    Host Niala Boodhoo spent the morning at the EnterpriseWorks incubator speaking with Director Laura Frerichs. Frerichs said the Research Park “is a hotbed of startup activity. There’s so much science happening at the University and ample opportunity to bring that to the market through the ingenuity of students, faculty, alumni that see an opportunity for new products and new technologies that can truly be disruptive.” They talked all about the startup workforce in Champaign-Urbana and how it contributes to technological growth.

     

    Boodhoo also spent some time speaking with Research Park startup owners and iVenture entrepreneurs about their companies. She began with EarthSense founder Chinmay Soman and later interviewed Petronics co-founders Michael Friedman and Dave Cohen about the future of their businesses. She also spoke with iVenture participants Teresa Yang of PhantomCor and Kendall Furbee of Cut To The Case about their experience as student entrepreneurs.

    On September 29-30, University of Illinois Research Park's EnterpriseWorks hosted the second annual PygHack. This 24-hour hackathon brought together campus and community to build and innovate for the greater good of Champaign-Urbana. 

    Sixteen teams completed projects and submitted them for review. Projects were judged on community benefit, collaboration, design, functioning prototype, and innovation. Project submissions ranged from CUConnect, an educational job board that connects UIUC students, families and local businesses to a submission called ProfessorsPet, a generalized algorithm that evaluates a competitiveness index for a class, professor and students. 

    Thank you to Research Park companies, Huawei, Granular, and Wolfram for the generous prizes provided to winners.
