Companies often have a problem that can be uniquely solved by a university partnership. They will invest in external research to achieve an innovative solution for a new product or process that has great commercialization or market potential. But why would an academic want to be involved with addressing current business challenges?
The New Hampshire Innovation Research Center (NHIRC) is now soliciting Letters of Intent from New Hampshire companies for conducting research at New Hampshire-based colleges and universities (including Dartmouth and the University of New Hampshire). The grants support projects under development in the private sector. Projects can vary from proof-of-concept to a substantial product or process design.
