Senior Lecturer Donnie Lecturer has been selected as an Innovation Fellow for the Spring Semester.
Launched last fall as part of UGA’s Innovation District initiative, the Innovations Fellows program aims to encourage faculty and staff to capitalize on the resources available through UGA’s research commercialization office, Innovation Gateway, to pursue their interest in commercialization and product development.
“Our outreach should improve when you consider that UGA is one of the largest landscape architecture programs in the U.S., and it has recently been ranked as the No. 1 place to hire landscape architecture grads by Design Intelligence Magazine,” said Longenecker. “I’m hoping that through the process of customer discovery, developing a specific value proposition and understanding the logistics of delivery and organization, I can make our outreach efforts much more effective.”
