NCIIA and NSF have combined forces to launch the National Innovation Network (NIN) to help university researchers fast track their technological innovations and bring their discoveries to people who need them.
Every day, researchers are working on campuses across the country pushing the boundaries of science and technology to improve lives. The NIN connects them to a national pipeline of collaborators, mentors and partners, and provides them with cutting-edge tools and educational resources to form successful startups and commercialize their products.
Hundreds of NSF-funded researchers from I-Corps™ Teams, I-Corps™ Nodes, and I-Corps™ Sites participate in the NIN, which NCIIA guides and facilitates. Working together, this network of ingenious thinkers addresses America’s needs for innovation education, infrastructure, and research.
