NSF I-Corps informational meetings scheduled Sept. 11-12
Iowa State University has been named a National Science Foundation Innovation-Corps site (NSF I-Corps), a distinction shared by more than 70 universities in the United States that contribute to the National Innovation Network. As one of the newest NSF I-Corps sites in the country, ISU’s goal is to help embed a stronger and more pervasive culture of entrepreneurship and innovation in students, faculty and research staff and to train a new generation of entrepreneurial scientists fully equipped to cross the translational bridge from creative ideas to early-stage technology to full-fledged companies.
The university will host informational meetings (9 – 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 11, MU Gallery and 9 – 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, MU Pioneer Room) to provide an overview of the I-Corps program and the process for participation by students, post-docs, staff and faculty. Attend either meeting to learn more about how the program can help you explore the commercial potential of your research discovery or innovation and increase its impact.
