From Princeton-Industry Partnership To Your Smartphone

This week, Steve Abramson of  Universal Display Corporation spoke at the Annual Research Symposium of PRISM, the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials.

WHYY Science Reporter Alan Yu followed up with a story explaining how Princeton research wound up in the new iPhoneX. The answer is, "via UDC."

"That technology came out of research from Princeton University in the 1990s, and it’s part of an increasing trend of universities partnering with companies to turn research into new patents and products."

Yu's story is about more than the path this particular technology took from a Princeton lab to your pocket. It's about why companies and universities are increasingly entering into research collaborations. And why it makes sense for parties to enter into these relationships for the long-term, rather than constructing them around one-off projects.

"...companies and universities form such partnerships because getting a big breakthrough requires paying for a lot of fundamental science, and it’s hard to guarantee all that work leads to a new product."
