The National Innovation Network (NIN) is the collection of nationwide I-Corps Hubs, Nodes, and Sites that standardizes curriculum and spreads I-Corps training to numerous universities across the country. With its investment in I-Corps Hubs, the NSF is building a structure that can expand the I-Corps program throughout the community of NSF-funded researchers, local and regional entrepreneurial communities, and other federal agencies. The resulting National Innovation Network works collaboratively to create and sustain a national ecosystem.
