About Us

Our Services

The George Washington University is home to a large network of researchers, faculty and staff working to advance knowledge and address the challenges of today. The Office for Industry and Corporate Research (OICR), within the Office of the Vice President for Research, seeks, identifies and tracks opportunities to foster strategic collaborations with industry and corporate partners. These mutually beneficial partnerships leverage the strengths of industry and academia towards a common goal, translate discoveries into real world impact and further the strategic missions of both organizations.
Let us connect you to the expertise, technologies and resources that will advance your project and business.
