Universities are now adapting and leading the creation of regional, integrated innovation ecosystems, managing in a more federated way the resources, strengths and friction points in translating university research and intellectual property into commercially viable products and services, and driving regional economic impact. In this new age, connectivity has given us a multitude of contributors in defining the problems which drive innovation, allowing organizations to now operate in an age of abundance in most other areas related to innovation. As a result, sustaining engagement throughout the process from innovation to societal impact allows organizations to vastly increase the ability to produce, analyze and derive actionable insight from data. Join this innovation tour to unpack how UCI has focused on partnership with industry on a much deeper level; moving from transactional relationships to strategic, collaborative engagement in every corner of the university, and at every stage of the innovation and commercialization process.
UCI Applied Innovation is reinventing the way university innovation is done; expanding on a historical track record of over $14.5 billion in university-connected start-up funding. We're changing industry and university collaboration, engaging earlier and deeper. Through a network of venture capitalists, angel investors, programming partners and domain experts, all co-located under one roof at The Cove, a state-of-the-art innovation facility, we’re accelerating entrepreneurial success and building more start-ups.
