For Faculty

What's New and What's Next?

To have impact, people must be connected to communities, recognize needs, and turn needs into opportunities.

Productive collaborations connect extraordinary talent in both research and corporations. They leverage the strengths of both organizations and offer mutually beneficial opportunities to experience breakthrough science, technology and applications. Interdisciplinary thinking refines and optimizes real world solutions, moving technology from discovery to implementation. In collaboration with corporate partners, research achieved at the George Washington University can be transformed into commercial applications. Practical, powerful and flexible, they capitalize on real-world opportunities. Their delivery impacts society.
