After a long season of polar vortexes, pot-holed roads and snow days, we are all ready for something new. Here at Princeton, we are looking for the next innovation: A more reliable solar power network in New Jersey. Better security for on-line purchases. Scar-free tattoo removal. These and other exciting new technologies you can read about in this newsletter - ranging from early-stage concepts to prototyped projects – recently received funding from University innovation programs with the hope of providing the resources and the feedback to bring them one step closer to the market. 

The University also continues to encourage future researchers by supporting the NJ Regional Science Bowl at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, and making attendance at Princeton University more affordable for students from all economic backgrounds.

And speaking of technology, you can now follow us - or more particularly, the ideas, innovations, issues, community service, art, events and activities generated on campus - on facebook and twitter.
