Innovation drives modern, globalized knowledge-based economies. Innovations accumulate primarily at universities. To be useful they need to be translated into practice through commercialization.
The mission of the Shipley Center is to accelerate the commercialization of discovery-driven Clarkson innovations into the marketplace, to foster and accelerate the exchange of ideas between the various schools on campus and industry and to prepare and educate the faculty and students for the 21st century entrepreneurial workplace.
Clarkson University is well suited to reach these objectives, as it is a center of technology, engineering, applied science and education, all in one, in a large geographical area.
University-industry culture already exists through the Center for Advanced Material Processing (CAMP). The Business School provides unique opportunities to achieve educational goals and support broader Shipley Center objectives.
