Kansas City,MO (12-27-2006)

From Kansas City Star



Computer science award: Jeffery Alan Unger of Shawnee, a senior in computer science, is a member of a KU computer science and computer engineering team that won a multi-university design competition led by a major Kansas City-based health care software development firm. On Dec. 6, students from KU, Kansas State University, the University of Iowa and Purdue University traveled to Kansas City to present their semester-long design project to executives at Cerner Corp. Unger and fellow team members Samantha Cook, John Heideman and Jonathan Van Eenwyk, took first-place honors. The competition asked students to develop software for a PDA to be used by physicians and other health care providers. The PDA would present, collect and tie together patient information and other data essential to health care providers as they care for their clients.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
