The Applied Research Institute serves as a concierge for Government and Industry to personnel and resources across the University and has developed a number of relationships across the industry sector.

Based on these relationships, ARI has facilitated numerous teaming opportunities. Industry partners contact ARI with the research, technology, and expertise needs based on the opportunity. ARI talks with UVa researchers to identify matches.

Once the opportunity has been awarded, ARI manages the interactions between the UVa researcher and other team members.
