The University of Kentucky (UK) and GE Appliances entered a master agreement to collaborate on research projects that could yield new major appliances inventions.

The agreement specifies terms and conditions for the licensing and sharing of jointly developed intellectual property and establishes parameters for future research projects.

UK and GE will collaborate on projects to improve the functionality and durability of GE's appliances like extending the life of water-using products and continuing the work GE engineers have started to improve water filtration technologies. In the near future, GE Appliances will work with UK's Institute for Sustainable Manufacturing to explore new manufacturing technologies and practices.

The agreement was the focus of a ceremony held at GE's Appliance Park in Louisville, KY, attended by UK President Eli Capilouto and Vice President for Research James W. Tracy as well as GE Appliances President and CEO Chip Blankenship and Vice President of Technology Kevin Nolan.

"Designing and manufacturing home appliances requires expertise in multiple branches of science and engineering," said Nolan. "The research agreement between GE Appliances and UK provides the framework for working together on challenging problems and helps us leverage the technical expertise at UK."

"In a world increasingly driven by technology, there is an ever-growing need for research to make products that last longer and perform better and more efficiently," Capilouto said. "The University of Kentucky has the intellectual and human capital to help GE bring better things to life, and GE's investment in research at UK will help train a new generation of scientists and engineers."
