Mike and Renee Child Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
We move great ideas forward

The Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship integrates science and business for social benefit.

We bring together researchers in science and engineering with faculty, MBA students, UC Davis undergraduates, experienced entrepreneurs, investors and corporate leaders to support technology transfer and commercialization activities.

Our programs help researchers and students build the networks, knowledge and tools to communicate the value of their work, explore commercialization strategies, connect with industry partners, and design research programs that address and align with practical applications.
