Cross-Cutting Areas


Woven throughout DPI's four key themes are important cross-cutting areas of opportunity where the innovation created within the DPI meets humanity in real and impactful ways. These areas: culture and society, entrepreneurship and technology transfer, education and workforce development and public policy will allow the DPI to strategically align on specific areas of research and development that will affect our world in a positive way.

Together, these public-private collaborative efforts will be guided by working groups and advisory committees that will drive economic growth throughout Illinois with a global impact.
