Results That Matter

The Cornell Research community—faculty, students, alumni, funders, and partners—produces results that truly matter in applied and basic research and scholarship. These results address societal concerns, enrich lives, and advance the economy. Cornell University is deeply committed to the transfer of knowledge and discoveries, commercialization, sustainable economic development and job creation, all of which work together to improve the quality of life for people and communities spanning the globe. Cornell’s Research Serves the Region and Beyond: Small Business Development provides a sampling of how Cornell technology is transferred through the development of small businesses. See also the Cornell Economic Impact and Entrepreneurship website.
