Georgia Tech consistently ranks among the top U.S. universities in the volume of research conducted, and and in 2016, we conducted $791 million in research. But addressing critical research challenges isn’t enough. We’re also moving these solutions out into the world through commercialization and technology transfer, creating an innovation ecosystem to benefit stakeholders ranging from students to startup companies.
