Think Differently: Innovation Campus Wants Fresh Look



The Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Commerce Rhode Island to create a physical space where breakthrough thinking is formally cultivated and funded. And we're looking for the best thinkers in the world. Stand out from the crowd.

Earlier this summer, Commerce RI issued an Invitation for Expressions of Interest to generate initial ideas on how industry and academia can collaborate to build a transformative Innovation Campus (or campuses) in Rhode Island. This competition will ultimately award funds via an RFP from the $20 million bond issuance approved by Rhode Island’s voters. Applications must involve collaboration with research partners including the University of Rhode Island. The inclusion of other national and international universities and medical centers as partners is encouraged.

You can see the requirements here. Note that per the instructions, all submissions should be sent to  If you have any further questions, please get in touch with our team at RI Innovation Campus
