Across the country, Hubs implement the I-Corps™ program in the research community by creating a network of universities that help researchers learn how to translate fundamental research to the marketplace. The I-Corps Hubs form the new operational backbone of the National Innovation Network, a network of universities, NSF-funded researchers, established entrepreneurs, local and regional entrepreneurial communities, and other federal agencies. Hubs work collaboratively to build and sustain a diverse and inclusive innovation ecosystem throughout the U.S.
The I-Corps Mid-Atlantic Hub is a collaboration of 10 large research institutions spanning North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Pennsylvania. The Hub is led by the University of Maryland and seeks to pool the combined resources of universities to standardize and spread I-Corps training across the region.
