University (NKU) is working in collaboration with
Northern Kentucky business, civic and government leaders to attract
successful technology-oriented businesses to the region. The concept of
the university supporting New Economy technology commercialization is a
key element of the New Economy Plan for Northern Kentucky, a regional plan developed as a collaborative effort
involving NKU and area business and industry leaders in response to
the Kentucky Innovation Act.
The Institute for New Economy Technologies (iNET) serves as a link
between high-tech companies and the university’s human, physical, and
iNET focuses on providing emerging high-technology companies with
qualified interns and co-ops, relationships with academic scholars, and
close proximity to university research.
