“At a public university, sometimes it’s not how much we are bringing in, but how much we contribute to society.” - Bridget Buxton

Katz says both URI and its non-

profit research foundation, URI Ventures, are enormously proud of the discoveries and ventures launched by faculty and students who imagine big ideas and partner with companies to bring them to market. “A key mission of URI is to translate discoveries from laboratories, workshops, studios, stages, libraries, research vessels, and offices into the services, products, and policies that benefit our society and the world.”
