About the PIPELINE Network
The PIPELINE Network is a three-year project bringing together the efforts of seven institutions to create and document new approaches to teaching innovation and entrepreneurship in physics.
The project is charged with developing research instruments to investigate the link between physics innovation and entrepreneurship (PIE) education experiences and corresponding student and faculty attitudes. These deliverables will be made available via the web, email, and meetings.
The project is advised by an industry team and by three institutions with strong innovation- and entrepreneurship-focused physics programs: Carthage College, Case Western Reserve University, and Kettering University.
