Discovery Partners Institute

Together we are committed to
changing the world.

The Discovery Partners Institute (DPI) is an interdisciplinary public-private research institute located in Chicago, and is a node of the Illinois Innovation network (IIN), a set of virtually connected clusters across the state. Led by the University of Illinois System with partners across the state, the DPI and IIN are the foundation for new partnerships and approaches that catalyze economic growth. World-class faculty, students, and companies will work side-by-side at the DPI to develop solutions, promote entrepreneurship, and empower inventors of the future.
