Technology Roundtable Series aims (1) to highlight some of the many innovative cutting-edge research technologies with promising commercial potential from NU and participating local universities, and (2) to strengthen ties and networks among university and industry researchers, startups in RTP, and business development professionals from major and local AgBiotech companies. NU expects these networks fostered via the Roundtables will lead to future research collaborations and licensing opportunities between academia and industries, by which technology seeds could be further developed to commercialization.

6. About Technology Roundtable Series
The NU Tech Technology Roundtable series is one of the technology marketing efforts by Nagoya University (NU) and Technology Partnership of Nagoya University, Inc. (NU Tech), NU’s technology transfer office in the U.S., in cooperation with local universities in RTP. The first Roundtable was held on October 2010 in cooperation with North Carolina State University (NCSU), whose main topic was focused on Plant/Agriculture technology; the second was on October 2011 with University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and Wake Forest University Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), focusing on Regenerative Medicine; the 3rd Roundtable was on October 2012 in cooperation with NCSU, UNC-CH and WFIRM, focusing on Diagnostics and Molecular Therapeutics; and the 4th Roundtable was held on October 2013, focusing on Crop Science and Biotechnology in corporation with Duke University, NCSU and UNC-CH and brought 150 participants. Although 5th NU Tech Roundtable in March 2015 was cancelled due to inclement weather, 6th Roundtable focusing on Biomedical Engineering was concluded with great success in November 2015.
NU Tech’s Roundtable aims to bridge the gap and strengthen networks and relations among university researchers, entrepreneurs and startups in RTP, and business representatives from major and local healthcare and Life science companies, by showcasing cutting edge technologies from Nagoya University and local universities in North Carolina.
