What we do
Understanding the interplay of policy and innovation is essential in building a community of stakeholders from various sectors: entrepreneurs, business and industry leaders, policymakers, venture capitalists, government, and academia.
The advocacy and policy committee has three goals:
- determine how the IIN can best play a role in advocating for higher education, research, and innovation in Illinois
- develop an advocacy plan that can be used to promote the IIN as a successful collaborative model
- explore funding opportunities for the IIN through government, foundations, and the private sector
