Business Partnership

Shaking HandsThe Rutgers Energy Institute (REI) fosters close collaborations with external partners in the business world through its Business Partnership Program. The institute draws on strategic teams of experts from academic units and research centers to work on developing cutting edge energy research, offering unique collaborative opportunities for business leaders.

Our Business Partnership Program supports advanced research and development, business analysis, policy study, and educational outreach, across a broad range of fields at the intersection of energy, technology, and the environment.

Rutgers multidisciplinary academic expertise in science, engineering, economics and policy, sparks paths to longstanding partnerships and innovative comprehensive solutions. Rutgers clean energy innovation center, the EcoComplex, uniquely serves to move inventions from the lab to real-world applications while offering assistance with business plan development, market research, and supply chain modeling. The REI also serves to promote relationships between our greatest resource for the future, our exceptional students, and industry to transform New Jersey and the nation through education, training, and leadership.
