As part of the university's commitment to economic development and outreach, CTL hosts a variety of events to create connections between the Cornell campuses, industry members, entrepreneurs, and investors.
On October 20, 2011, CCTEC hosted the 2011 Technology Innovations Gala Reception to recognize Cornell faculty innovators whose research results have been licensed to industry partners for commercial development in the last two years. More than 100 guests including faculty inventors and their guests, industry representatives, community leaders, university Trustees, and university senior administrators gathered to celebrate the faculty innovators accomplishments. Senior Vice Provost for Research, Robert Buhrman, presented Professor Francis Barany the 2011 Ezra Technology Innovator Award for his outstanding innovations in molecular diagnostics, in recognition of the contributions made to the diagnosis of disease.
