For Industry


Working with business and industry is a tradition deeply rooted in Iowa State University's role as a land-grant institution.

Every day for over 150 years, we have put our research expertise, specialized laboratories, and technical strengths to work for companies like yours. And today, what we learn from you about the challenges of the global marketplace informs our research and the courses we teach.

Whether you want to solve a technical problem, develop a technology or product, commercialize a technology, or obtain business assistance, our Office of Economic Development and Industry Relations (EDIR) connects you to the appropriate world-class experts and resources in our research and economic development enterprises.

Bring your ideas and challenges to our scientists and experts.
