Rogers Corporation And Northeastern University To Launch Joint Innovation Center

Rogers Corporation (NYSE: ROG) and Northeastern University have announced plans to establish the Rogers Innovation Center at Northeastern’s George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security in Burlington, Mass. This partnership demonstrates the emergence of a new opportunity for university-corporate collaborations aimed at accelerating the commercialization of basic research.

As a global technology leader in advanced materials and components for consumer and power electronics, transportation, telecommunications and defense systems, Rogers’ expertise closely aligns with Northeastern’s focus on use-inspired research in health, security, and sustainability.

The partnership will allow Rogers and Northeastern to leverage their complementary research and development initiatives in advanced materials. Rogers is a world leader in developing and manufacturing unique, high-performance materials used in high-frequency printed circuits, power electronics, impact protection and sealing applications. Northeastern brings to the partnership a broad range of materials research expertise in areas as diverse as super strong carbon fibers and metamaterials designed for invisibility cloaking.

Focused on the earliest stages of technical and commercial development, the Center will foster a collaborative environment for developing new high-tech materials solutions in close alignment with market needs. Robust communications infrastructure is among the initial application areas targeted by the partnership.

Bob Daigle, Chief Technology Officer for Rogers, commented, “Our team looks forward to collaborating with academic researchers in the entrepreneurial environment being created at the Kostas Institute. Together with Northeastern, we are excited to share capabilities and scientific knowledge to create new materials solutions that will help power, protect and connect the world in new and better ways.”

To be completed by year-end, the Innovation Center will be housed in 4,000 square feet of the 70,000 square foot Kostas Institute and will include laboratories, conference rooms, and office space for both Northeastern faculty members and a core team of R&D, marketing, and new business development professionals from Rogers. The co-location of personnel and the modern “open-office” structure are intended to encourage corporate-academic collaboration, and innovation from basic research through commercialization. The Center will also provide a unique opportunity for Northeastern students to gain first-hand insight on the inner workings of industry.
