Innovative Technology

University of Idaho is a highly-skilled and valuable research partner for organizations seeking solutions to key problems facing society.

It has been said that necessity is the mother of invention. With a world struggling to find answers to problems like dwindling supplies of fossil fuels and a changing climate, and with a nation facing one of the toughest economic periods in its history, new inventions have never been more necessary.

Building on existing strengths, we are committed to generating knowledge to addresses issues critical to the health of people, the environment, and communities both nationally and internationally.
