The Innovation Center is a community of industry entrepreneurs and academic researchers based at the University of Illinois at Chicago working together to identify and realize breakthrough products and services. We bring together local and international businesses, colleges within our University, students, faculty, and outside consultants to form the right constellation of collaborators to generate IP for our partners. We implement and teach a rigorous development process rooted in user-centered research and iterative testing to deliver product and service innovations that meet known and unknown needs.
