The U.S. National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-CorpsTM) Hubs form the operational backbone of the National Innovation Network (NIN), which consists of universities, NSF-funded and other researchers, established entrepreneurs, local and regional entrepreneurial communities, and federal agencies.

Hubs work collaboratively to build and sustain diverse and inclusive innovation networks across the country. Through its national and regional training programs, Hubs train researchers to bring promising ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace.

The University of Arizona is part of the Desert and Pacific Region I-Corps Hub.


Applications are now being accepted for Cohort 6:

Please note, all classes will take place via Zoom on Friday afternoons from 12-3 AZ time.
