Office of Innovation

We accelerate passion and ideas into working prototypes, startups, patents, industry partnerships, and community and global impact. The Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) has included the University of Cincinnati in its list of IEP Designees since 2013. The IEP program recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a meaningful, ongoing and substantial commitment to economic and community development, growth, and economic opportunity.

We achieve this at the 1819 Innovation Hub, the connecting place where UC meets the world and the world meets UC.
