A network of facilities to develop, refine, and train.
iNDustry Labs provides regional industry partners access to University of Notre Dame facilities with cutting edge research and development expertise and equipment, enabling them to compete in an increasingly sophisticated global marketplace. These resources also mitigate the costs to local businesses of having to purchase, use, and maintain the equipment themselves.
Notre Dame Core Research Facilities
The Research facilities at Notre Dame, (Cores) provide expertise in a number of areas, are fully staffed to give guidance, support, and instrumentation for their users, and operate with open access for regional use on a fee-for-service basis. The facilities provide an opportunity to test and validate technologies, materials and digital software in collaboration with research experts.
Future iNDustry Labs Facilities
Augmenting Notre Dame’s current research strengths, iNDustry Labs Innovation Facilities will establish world-class innovation capabilities in those research disciplines that align with the existing and emerging industries in the South Bend-Elkhart Region. New and expanded facilities to support applied research in the following fields are in development and/or will be announced in Spring 2020.
iNDustry Hub @ Innovation Park
The iNDustry Labs Hub provides regional industry and civic partners with a ‘front door’ with assistance to navigate the broad array of resources and programs at the University. The iNDustry Hub includes a design thinking and co-working venue for training, workshops and technical project reviews that is open and accessible to local businesses.
LIFT Network Facilities
The programs, services, and equipment available in the facilities of Regional Institutions provide an array of resources to equip the workforce with skills and capabilities necessary to support the growing and rapidly changing needs of regional industry partners. As needs are identified, INDustry Labs, in collaboration with LIFT Network partners, can provide industry partners with a recommended set of equipment and facility resources available to students and businesses throughout the region.
