UNL researchers are aggressively advancing the frontiers of science, engineering, medicine and the humanities. Our research enterprise features core strengths in agriculture, food science and biotechnology; materials and nanosciences; engineering, transportation and construction sciences; software engineering and digital humanities; math and science education; and energy, water and sustainability sciences. The discoveries and creative works generated by our faculty and students enhance quality of life, stimulate economic development and inspire the next generation of scholars, scientists and leaders.
The pinnacle of UNL's research and collaborative economic development efforts is Nebraska Innovation Campus-a 249-acre private/public research and technology development campus adjacent to UNL's city and east campuses. Nebraska Innovation Campus will accommodate a variety of private/public partnerships and facilities arrangements to enable faculty, government scientists, private research enterprises, entrepreneurs and industry to move fundamental research and development discoveries from the laboratory to the marketplace.
Nebraska Innovation Campus presents an unprecedented opportunity to strengthen and diversify the state of Nebraska's economy and significantly increase its international business competitiveness by creating a physical and cultural space for innovation. Here, the research strengths of UNL and the development strengths of the private sector are coupled to create a powerful economic, intellectual and scientific engine.
We look forward to working with you!
