Research and Innovation
The Office of Research and Innovation was created in January 2015 to advance the university’s strategic initiatives around research and innovation, including its goal to double research funding over the next five years, and to provide an infrastructure that supports idea generation, entrepreneurship and commercialization across campus. The office oversees a variety of functional areas, including research compliance and sponsored programs, and several key initiatives, such as the university-wide strategic innovation fund, the 707 Hub powered by Kohler Center for Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Initiative, and Marquette’s presence at the Global Water Center.
Faculty, students and staff are invited to the fourth Pop-Up Café on Thursday, Sept. 28. At this informal gathering, guests will have the networking opportunity to meet people who work in the Global Water Center. This is also an opportunity to see the shared conference room space that is available for Marquette employees to reserve.
