"New Jersey Research Asset Database" Will Facilitate Academic and Industry Collaborations

Princeton University has taken a leadership role in New Jersey's adoption and implementation of a new tool to help build research collaborations.

The New Jersey Research Asset Database (RAD) will help both academics and industry discover the research interests of faculty at New Jersey’s participating institutions. This improved transparency will make potential collaborations easier to identify and form.

Princeton is one of five institutions participating in the pilot program that will also include  Rutgers UniversityNew Jersey Institute of Technology, Stevens Institute of Technology and Rowan University. Industry representatives from the New Jersey Business & Industry Association, Choose New Jersey, BioNJ, the Healthcare Institute of New Jersey, the Research and Development Council of New Jersey, and the New Jersey Tech Council will also serve on the RAD advisory board.   

The New Jersey RAD is modeled on similar databases in other states and is being developed under the auspices of the New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority. The database is expected to launch in early 2018.
