Getting Started: WSU Researchers
It’s different. It’s complex. It’s a new approach to research.
IREO helps faculty engage with their private sector partners. We serve WSU faculty and students by providing trainings and customized supports that help you find, communicate, and navigate your way to a private sector research partnership.
It can be daunting to figure out how to navigate the private sector and build a research partnership. It is a different process from grant writing, but for those who want to see their work applied in the world, it is often a prerequisite. Each industry has different rules of engagement and differing needs. It takes active work to find the right door into a company, to understand how your work relates to them, and how best to position yourself for funding.
