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.
The Office of Research and Innovation announced the 2017 strategic innovation fund recipients. There were eight projects selected this year in the areas of water/environmental, community impact and interdisciplinary research infrastructure.
