RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Fuentek, LLC, one of the world’s leading intellectual property (IP) and technology transfer consulting firms, is pleased to announce they have received an Award of Merit from the Society for Technical Communication’s (STC) 2014 International Summit Awards for the development of a Georgia Tech Industry Research Collaborations brochure. STC hosts the International Summit Awards annually to evaluate and reward professional technical communication. It presents awards to entries that meet a set of high technical communication standards across numerous categories.
