The KUTLU-NITT Gateway Project at the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator was launched in January to connect the resources of SUNY Fredonia and the Kanazawa University Technology Licensing Organization - Nihonkai Innovation Technology Transfer (KUTLO-NITT). 

KUTLO-NITT is a consortium of 11 universities and two licensing organizations in Japan created to facilitate the licensing of technology from academia.

It seeks to do the same in the U.S.

At a reception during the international visit on Friday, May 7, Mr. Goodman unveiled new graphics that provide branding for the center's operations at the incubator.

The logos  and signage were designed by SUNY Fredonia students.  

University President Dennis L. Hefner exchanged gifts with the international guests, Harry Hitano, president of KUTLO-NITT and Yoji Yuki, president of Niigata University.

KUTLO-NITT's activity is approved by Japanese Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry (METI), which funded a training residency at the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator for Dr. Hiroko Sato, a technology transfer specialist from KUTLO-NITT.
