The IDEA Center

The University has made great strides in its effort to proliferate the ideas and innovation taking place on-campus.  Our office partners with our friends at the IDEA Center to both find inventions that might help compliment existing expertise, or even better, provide an opening to a market not yet explored. Standing for Innovation, De-Risking and Enterprise Acceleration, the IDEA Center is the fundamental resource for all commercialization and entrepreneurial activities at the University of Notre Dame. It provides the necessary space, services and expertise for idea development, commercialization, business formation, prototyping, entrepreneurial education and student entrepreneurial efforts. It is designed to bring the best Notre Dame faculty, staff and student ideas and innovations to market.
