CREATING NEW PATHWAYS
It starts with an aha moment. It continues with curiosity. And with the right support, the pursuit of knowledge can take us anywhere. That’s why the re-envisioned Grainger Institute for Engineering (GIE) is here—creating innovative pathways—to help you take your aha moments as far as they can go: from exploring risky ideas to conducting well-funded research, from disclosure to launching a startup.
As we kick off an exciting new chapter, we’ve made it our mission to create accessible, equitable, traversable pathways between untested ideas, remarkable discoveries, tech transfer, and entrepreneurship.
PROVIDING INNOVATIVE SUPPORT
Embarking on untested ideas may seem risky, but groundbreaking discoveries start with first steps. GIE supports the incubation of seedling research to help aha moments materialize.
Remarkable discoveries make for untold possibilities. Whether building capacity for big proposals or exploring pathways to disclosure or startup, GIE can help translate engineering breakthroughs into practice.
Once research has matured into a consistent effort or consolidated research center, GIE can provide resources and support vital to continued success and the nucleation of new research.
