Message from the Vice Provost

July 2013

As The Innovation University®, Stevens’ commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship is manifested through the university’s strategic plan initiatives, the integration of innovation and entrepreneurship into the curricula, the relevance and quality of faculty research, and the training of students and faculty to create economic value from their innovations.

Stevens created the Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (OIE) to directly support the university’s entrepreneurial mission. The OIE inculcate entrepreneurship skills and training throughout the four-year educational experience and facilitate mentorship, networking, showcasing and start-up assistance to maximize entrepreneurial start-ups from within the Stevens community. The OIE also concludes licensing agreements, secures IP protection, manages Stevens IP portfolio, and assists in negotiations for industrial contracts.

The OIE Newsletter is an electronic publication that will bring you news, stories and events of the extensive and impactful entrepreneurial activities of our faculty, students, alumni and partners.

We look forward to connecting with you!

Dr. Christos Christodoulatos
Stevens Vice Provost of Innovation & Entrepreneurship
