NYCRIN, an NSF-funded I-Corps regional node, combines the strengths of CUNY, Columbia University, New York University and over 21 other leading regional research universities to provide state-of-the-art training for academic researchers and technologists. The I-Corps program prepares teams of researchers for transitioning their emerging technology concepts into valuable products and processes that benefit society by offering an experiential learning opportunity to help determine the commercial readiness of their technology.
