The purpose of the Innovation Center is to identify and develop innovative IT ideas that create value for higher education. These ideas must have a cost-neutral impact, and provide practical utility for the University within its academic or business units. The Center will identify innovative ideas, match these ideas with the right people within the Temple community for further investigation, and when appropriate, spin off these technologies to create cost-effective, practical IT tools for Temple University.
The Center will serve as a hub to identify new and innovative IT tools, and explore how they can be implemented to best serve the instructional and business operational needs at the University. The facility will also serve as a Digital Resource Center where faculty, staff, and students can consult with experts to get technical assistance, training, and production services for technology-related projects.
