New Expertise Portal Quickly Connects Businesses With Experienced Researchers And High-Tech Facilities At Top Michigan Universities

"By using this portal, companies can get assistance with advancing a new product or process, or in finding a solution to a particular challenge - all without having to guess at which researcher or facility is the best one to contact," said Daryl Weinert, Associate Vice President at the University of Michigan Office of Research and Sponsored Projects in Ann Arbor. "We know companies need timely answers to remain competitive, and we can make sure they are connected to the right university resources quickly."

In this rare collaboration, business engagement officers at all six universities work together to develop a strategy for connecting companies with appropriate and available university resources. The portal is part of an array of programs offered by MCRN and funded by the MEDC to help businesses connect with university resources in an effort to boost Michigan's economy while strengthening the collaboration between academia and industry.
