What do these companies find at IAMDN? First, there is a variety of facilities, apparatuses, and equipment that even large companies often do not have, or cannot justify financing for limited use. Because IAMDN is dedicated to teaching for the future, equipment and apparatuses are constantly upgraded and updated, with a commitment to staying several steps ahead of the curve. IAMDN’s business is thinking and working for the future. It is more than just predicting future trends—it is creating future trends.
IAMDN researchers not only know how to optimize their equipment and apparatuses—in many cases they actually build them. There are several one-ofa- kind devices used in the institute’s labs. Such customized equipment is often built employing advanced technologies to meet specific research needs. To many companies the availabilty of such resources is cost effective and spurs creativity and innovation.
Finally, companies working for the first time with large university-based groups like IAMDN can take advantage of by the amount of cross-discipline expertise available within the Rutgers faculty and staff. Electric cars and the hydrogen economy can be great successes in the laboratory, but will society actually adapt to the necessary changes? There are people at great universities who are equipped and interested in working on such issues. IAMDN puts them at industry’s service.
