Michigan’s University Research Corridor – an alliance between Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University – was launched in 2006 by the presidents of Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University with a vision to unite and lead in playing a key role in creating a vibrant Michigan economy.

The URC focuses on talent creation through educating students, supporting innovation through research and development and encouraging the transfer of technology to the private sector. The three universities account for 93 percent of the academic research in Michigan, and nearly a quarter of all college students in Michigan attend one of the three schools.

The three URC universities are having a positive impact on Michigan’s economy, especially in Detroit, where they are investing to improve Detroit’s quality of life and producing the entrepreneurs who are boosting its economy. They also stack up well nationally, coming in second among eight university innovation clusters in a composite measure of R&D, commercialization and talent.
