Iowa State faculty and staff from nearly every discipline collaborate in nearly 100 institutes and centers on or near campus. These Iowa State research units variously provide on-campus and inter-institutional research and networking opportunities, specialized research facilities, data analysis services, projects with industry, assistance in the preparation of grant proposals, and funding for conferences and/or research activities.
We encourage you to contact the centers and institutes most relevant to your discipline or your company's research and technology interests to learn about the opportunities available.
The directory lists the Iowa State centers and institutes that the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, has approved, alphabetically and by cluster. To contact other Iowa State research units, use the links under Additional Research Units. Links to information about technology commercialization and Iowa State research results that are available to license are also provided.
Information about the process of establishing, reviewing, and closing centers and institutes is provided for Iowa State University faculty and staff.
