At U of I, our researchers invent technologies and create knowledge. VPEDI elevates these ideas into practical applications that solve problems and change lives.
VPEDI’S UNITS WORK TOGETHER TO PROTECT, FUND, SUPPORT, AND LAUNCH IDEAS. QUICKLY AND SEAMLESSLY.
From the pipeline to the public, we help ensure that U of I innovations stimulate and contribute to local, national, and global economies.
Amazing thinkers. Amazing doers. Our collaborations and partnerships help move ideas, jobs, and the economy forward.
When ideas become reality, and innovative discoveries are brought to market, lives change.
