Working with Industry
Helping WSU researchers connect their research to industry and the public.
The Innovation and Research Engagement Office (IREO) works with students, faculty and staff to position WSU’s creative, scholarly and technical assets in ways that maximize impact and return value to our state and national stakeholders. The office serves to provide administrative support for faculty and external partners working to develop collaborations that leverage WSU expertise and yield meaningful benefits to our partners.
IREO’s core values embrace service, to the public and our institution; collaboration, with our internal and external stakeholders; and focus, on organizational goals and intended outcomes. Our service focused approach builds the internal and external infrastructure needed for successful partnering, and positions WSU to grow non-federally funded research in ways that serve the public good. Success in our mission results in growth of the WSU research portfolio and the embrace of a next-generation land grant approach to bringing new ideas into the world.
