ARI Silver Sign

Partner with the ARI

The Illinois Applied Research Institute at the University of Illinois bridges the gap between basic research and the marketplace. We harness the creativity and scientific ability available at the University of Illinois to provide our commercial and government partners a mechanism for collaborating on open, proprietary, or classified projects.

Structured to deliver innovative solutions on the time scales our customers demand, we work on translational projects in themes such as materials and manufacturing, modeling and simulation, data sciences, cybersecurity, autonomous systems, and energy.
