Increasing Equity in Academic Technology Commercialization
The New Jersey Equity in Commercialization Collective (NJECC) is an NSF ADVANCE partnership program that was created to address the significant equity issues in academic technology commercialization and eliminate systemic barriers at all levels. We also aim to increase the diversity of STEM faculty researchers who participate in New Jersey's entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem. NJECC partners with universities and organizations throughout New Jersey as part of this systemic change initiative.
Our team is comprised of professionals with diverse backgrounds in research and development, technology commercialization, and entrepreneurship, who also hold strong commitments to fostering diversity and inclusion.
As part of NJECC’s work to increase equity in academic technology commercialization, we are leading several initiatives throughout the state of New Jersey. Learn more about our initiatives here.
NJECC works in collaboration with Partner Universities and Organizations throughout New Jersey, as well as an Advisory Board comprised of distinguished experts, to implement its systemic change initiatives. Learn more about our Partners and Advisory Board here.
