For Corporations

The Office of Industry and Corporate Research (OICR) serves as the gateway to GW innovation and expertise, connecting industry and corporations to the wealth of innovative research conducted at GW.

Mutually Beneficial Relationships

We build mutually beneficial relationships between our industry partners and GW.  Since we come from industry, we understand exactly what a company desires from a relationship with academia. We facilitate seamless collaborations by identifying and matching GW's strengths to the strategic needs and goals of each company. We are seasoned executives who have begun start-ups, launched major research initiatives, taken companies public and run multi-million dollar organizations. 

Corporate Relations

Since 2012, we have formed collaborations with over thirty companies to support our research initiatives from funding research, jointly teaming with industry on research grants/contract, showcasing equipment, fulfilling equipment sales needs, commercializing technology and supporting our Centers & Institutes. Given our unique geographic position in the heart of our nation’s capital, GW's strength in policy related areas will provide you support and guidance as you navigate through various government agencies.

We listen to your needs and craft innovative solutions by working together.

We are the university's focal point for working with our Researchers and will facilitate connecting you with the responsible partners.
