The NCIIA is a community of the leading thinkers in technology innovation and entrepreneurship in universities and colleges from around the country.

We connect faculty and students from institutions of all kinds:

  • Research institutions with active technology transfer programs
  • Colleges exploring the teaching of applied innovation
  • Engineering schools and business schools, large and small, committed to offering their students more creative, hands-on experiences

Member benefits!
Students and faculty from member institutions are welcome to:

  • Apply for NCIIA grants
  • Attend NCIIA-sponsored events, such as Open 2014, our upcoming annual conference, for a reduced fee
  • Access free or reduced-fee services from our resource partners
  • Tap into a network of like-minded professionals to share ideas and educational strategies

Annual membership dues are $300 for colleges and $500 for universities. Membership applies to an entire institution. For example, dues are $500 for University X, not $300 for the University X College of Engineering.
