Submit your project idea to the Alaska Community Challenge

by shayne  |   

Companies have requested help from University of Alaska students to solve more than 20 engineering, chemistry, healthcare and marketing challenges.

The requests came via the Alaska Community Challenge created by the UAF Office of Intellectual Property and Commercialization. Visit the challenge website to see a list of current projects that are available for students.

Most projects suggested by the companies would work as multi-semester senior projects, but some would be good for single-semester class projects.

The OIPC's Center for Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship Seed Fund may be a source of funding to assist with the projects.

At the website, UA students and faculty can post their projects to attract students from other departments and campuses to join a project team. The website also lists UA faculty experts and other community engagement programs.

Contact Ky Holland at or 907-727-2735 to get additional project details or more information about increasing university engagement in community challenges.
