UVM_logoVermont’s colleges and universities are some of the state’s most active innovation hubs. The high-level research taking place at the University of Vermont produces several patents each year and has resulted in a number of commercially viable enterprises. And the cutting-edge cyber security projects connected with Norwich University through its Applied Research Institutes are providing crucial training for governmental entities and the country’s financial services sector.

Two representatives from UVM and Norwich discuss these endeavors at this panel discussion at the Vermont Tech Jam, which arose from conversations with the Vermont Technology Council.
