Governor Launches ‘Research With NJ’

Montclair State University is among six leading New Jersey universities contributing to “Research with NJ,” a scientific research database created to support the continued development of New Jersey’s innovation economy.

Governor Phil Murphy launched the portal in August, saying it is designed to foster collaboration between business, industry and prestigious New Jersey research institutions by providing free access to institutional research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. “Through Research with NJ, the University is able to share more fully our exceptional research assets and expertise in the search for solutions to today’s most pressing societal and scientific issues and in applications of new knowledge,” says President Susan A. Cole.

The portal showcases researchers from Montclair State, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton, Rowan, Rutgers and Stevens Institute of Technology. Vice Provost for Research and Graduate School Dean Scott Herness sits on the Research with NJ Advisory Board, which provides oversight, guidance and insights for the portal’s success.

“Research with NJ reflects the state, national and international impact of the University’s research efforts,” he says. “For New Jersey entrepreneurs and industry innovators, it is a streamlined, efficient way to connect with the cutting-edge institutional research breakthroughs that lead to the creation of new products – and bolster the state’s reputation as a national leader in innovation.”
