The research carried out on the Notre Dame campus advances the limits of human understanding and the University’s calling to be a force for good. As important as the work that is occurring in ND labs is, it is equally important that this work be translated to the market, where it can improve the human condition. To achieve this goal, the IDEA Center works with Notre Dame’s faculty to maximize the reach and impact of their research.
We are poised to build on the existing success of the IDEA Center and take its work from excellent to world-class in maximizing the impact of faculty research. Through funding for technical development milestones, student analysts, and our partnership program, we will be able to augment the amount of successful research endeavors produced through the IDEA Center and further enhance the impact of Notre Dame faculty research on the world.
