Miami University is teaming up with Dayton’s Wright Brothers Institute to launch an accelerator that will make use of patents owned by the U.S. Air Force.

The Miami University-AFRL Research Technology Commercialization Accelerator will have access to the portfolio of more than 1,000 patents and patent applications held by the Air Force Research Lab.

The research included in the portfolio includes items that weren’t used for defense purposes but could have potential for more widespread use. Miami will create and lead programming to connect that technology with entrepreneurs, funding and other resources to bring products to the market.
