Join us at the new UCI Institute for Innovation to learn about an interdisciplinary center focused on integrating research, entrepreneurship and technology to create real-world applications that benefit the public and drive the economy as a working community of students, scholars, industries, and entrepreneurs of innovation in Orange County. Funded by a $5 million endowment from the Beall Family Foundation, it incorporates UCI’s Office of Technology Alliances and the functions of corporate relations for industry-sponsored research. The new Institute is driving innovation by:

  • licensing technology out to the business community;
  • leveraging innovation resources on campus;
  • connecting entrepreneurs to venture capital networks and seed funding sources;
  • matching businesses with faculty and students; and
  • extending relationships and connections across campus.

This center will become the single point of contact for helping students and faculty transform discoveries into practices and products that benefit society.  It will help corporate partners and business leaders interested in research opportunities, working with UCI’s spin-off companies, licensing technologies and other innovation-related interactions.
