UConn Launches Internship Program for Student Entrepreneurs Interested in Technology Transfer

STORRS, CT (February 17, 2020) – This week, the University of Connecticut School of Engineering launched a new program called Experiential Entrepreneur Research Experience for Undergraduates (or more simply, E²REU).

E²REU provides STEAM majors thinking about a career as an innovator and entrepreneur hands-on experience in creating commercializable technology. Working in collaboration with faculty, graduate and post-graduate researchers, students will learn and experience how tech-based research gets translated to the marketplace.

Fellowships are available with labs associated with UConn’s College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources; College of Liberal Arts & Sciences; School of Engineering; and the School of Nursing.
