IN-PART's Top 6 Disruptive Innovations

This feature presents some of the most disruptive innovations published in the second quarter of 2017, by universities actively looking to find external collaboration partners through IN-PART. From monitoring plastic pollution in the oceans, to relieving pain in virtual reality, and inducing rainfall with lasers, the creativity of scientific research is inspiring.

With every ‘top disruptive innovations’ feature, it gets more difficult to choose between the innovations published on IN-PART each quarter. Narrowing down on a handful seems unjust. So, to accompany our final selection for Q2, we’ve shared ‘The Shortlist’, which features the technologies that were also nominated by our Community Engagement team.
