Innovation

With over 20,000 employees and annual sponsored research exceeding $270 million – VCU’s faculty and staff represent a significant engine of innovation for VCU and RVA. One of our goals is to translate our research into commercially viable products or services – a point where they can benefit both society and our economy. To do this, VCU works with established industry partners whom have the ability to bring products and services to market. Where appropriate, we also encourage and support commercialization through start-up companies.
