Over the last several months, through grants awarded by the University of Maine System Research Reinvestment Fund and Maine Technology Institute, four teams of UMaine faculty, staff and students and a Maine Health Innovation team participated in the sixth cohort of MIRTA, an intensive program to accelerate the development of their research into commercial-ready products. Members of this year's cohort are innovating in smart textiles, pulp-paper characterization, catheter technology ,firefighting materials and medical play equipment.
We invite you to join us to hear brief "pitches" from members of the 2023 MIRTA cohort. Teams will share what they learned during the accelerator and reveal their plans to move forward to commercialization.
