MSU introduces C3 collaboration next week

Morehead State University will host a daylong series of meetings with University leadership, faculty and staff, and community and regional partners to introduce the University’s new collaboration with the Commonwealth Commercialization Center (C3) from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, in Room 325 of the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC). A detailed presentation on C3 will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., followed by complimentary lunch and one-on-one visits from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.   

“C3 is Kentucky’s new engine for statewide innovation, which is created to fuel economic growth and development via the transformation of ideas into patents, business plans and investment,” said Dr. Michael Henson, associate provost for research and dean of the Graduate School. “Morehead State is extremely pleased to be an active partner in this initiative to benefit our region.”  

As a newly created science and technology nonprofit, C3 provides resources to the state’s public universities and colleges to transform ideas into patents, business plans and investment. This new collaboration provides a dedicated resource for Morehead State University faculty and staff that will help move promising ideas and research to products on the market for public benefit.  

If you are interested in attending this event, RSVP no later than Thursday, Oct. 17, to ensure adequate resources are available. To RSVP or learn more information about C3’s collaboration with Morehead State, visit
