NC State’s Office of Research, Innovation and Economic Development (ORIED) — the NC State home of NCICS and CICS-NC — is celebrating a year of tremendous success in 2017. Major accomplishments across ORIED included the launch of four innovative research programs and networks, a meteoric rise in the development of co-located partners, and unprecedented numbers of startups, patents, and dollars invested in research at NC State.

We at NCICS are pleased to contribute to ORIED’s vision: making an impact on society’s grand challenges through NC State’s emergence as a preeminent research university.
