Fostering Groundbreaking Discoveries & New Technologies
In alignment with the mission and vision of the Center for E3S, a Science and Technology Center fostering groundbreaking new science discoveries and fertilizing new technologies, knowledge transfer is central to E3S and a key metric of its success. At E3S, we regard knowledge transfer as a two-way street by establishing partnerships that will accelerate the Center’s research and programmatic endeavors, while creating new knowledge that can be shared with industry, academia and research labs.
Knowledge transfer at E3S happens at two levels:
- Knowledge transfer within the Center’s main partners as a cross-fertilization of ideas and projects
- Knowledge transfer throughout the technology and education ecosystem in which the Center participates
On the research side, the reach of knowledge transfer includes materials and device researchers, circuit designers, CAD software programmers, and manufacturers. On the education and diversity side, knowledge transfer aims to create opportunities for students at all levels by reaching out to education partners from K-12 to university level, organizations and initiatives to increase diversity in STEM fields, and potential employers of the Center’s graduates (students and postdocs).
