University of Oregon Teams Up with FirstIgnite at their Center for Big Learning

By July 1, 2022No Comments

FirstIgnite and the University of Oregon (UO) partnered together this past Spring to increase corporate engagement support for UO’s Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC), the Center for Big Learning.

Organizations like Graphcore, DataRobot, Owkin, and many more engaged with center staff to learn about their work intersecting deep learning, big systems, and big data.

“The lifeblood of every IUCRC center is a robust network of affiliate organizations interested in partnering on their research,” says David Melie, Head of Partnerships at FirstIgnite. “To help expand that network and create new potential collaborations is a point of pride for our team.”

FirstIgnite supports NSF funded organizations and research facilities across the United States, helping to foster growth with industry partners.
