    This year, Research Park occupancy reached an all-time high at a staggering 97 percent. With the welcoming of more agricultural, financial services, and global companies, collaboration between innovative businesses, students and faculty have never been greater. Research Park is now home to 110+ companies and employs more than 600 student interns.

    Laura Freichs comments on the increase of financial service insurance trading companies, or “FinTech” companies in Research Park, explaining, “I think that most people assume that companies like Google, Microsoft or Facebook are top employers, but one of the trends that we’re starting to see is an opportunity for FinTech companies to offer very exciting jobs.” FinTech company Country Financial opened their DigitaLab this year to develop mobile applications that enhance the customer experience and create brand awareness.

    Research Park has also welcomed new AgTech companies, such as AGCO, Syngenta, and Indigo Ag. Laura Freichs states that “The worlds of agriculture and technology have melded together, so you see a lot of the ag companies needing both agronomy expertise and technology expertise.”

    This year, Research Park has also welcomed Huawei, a global information and communication technology company based in Shenzhen, China to collaborate with students, scholars and researchers in exploring innovations in software technology. 

    Research Park’s occupancy growth does not end there. On December 11, 2017, Brunswick Corporation, will have their grand opening, and Synchrony Financial, a credit card issuer to many retailers, will also have its opening soon.

    With occupancy growth comes architectural growth. In order to keep up with interest in the park, Research Park is opening two new buildings, the Mixed Use Building and the TDFV IV Building. This way, occupancy can continue to grow and companies can continue to foster Illinois’ top tech talent.

    Company Overview: 

    POETS’ long-term goal is to increase the power density of current mobile electrified systems by 10-100 times over current state of the art systems. While ambitious, this would have a profound impact on a mobile electrified infrastructure of the U.S. and beyond. On-highway vehicles could save between 100-300 million liters of fuel per year and could nearly double the range of all-electric vehicles. Off-highway vehicles could save approximately 100 billion liters of fuel since their electrification is starting from a less mature point than current on-highway vehicles. Similarly, aircraft could see 10-30 billion liters of fuel saved as well as up to 10 million tons of CO2 saved from going into the high altitude atmosphere. These economic and environmental impacts are just the beginning of the art of the possible with the achievement of the POETS vision.

    Senior vice president of technology at Agrible, Brent Trenhaile, was recently featured in The News-Gazette for his work with Agrible and Anheuser Busch InBev.  Agrible has partnered with AB InBev to give barley growers useful information and to give them insights on how to grow crops more efficiently.  By taking the information gathered, Agrible and AB InBev are both able to build a global sustainability view by collecting data on the malted barley supply chain, water use, land efficiency and carbon footprints. 

    One of Agrible's largest priorities since 2008 was to help growers produce an even more sustainable crop yield.  In order to record farm operations, farmers use Morning Farm Report, a central site of data to give farmers information about their farms such as weather forecasts, energy use, soil loss, water quality, tractor time and more.  Using Morning Farm Report, this helps produce the information necessary to calculate sustainablity metrics.

    AB InBev farmers have access to Agrible's Morning Farm Report agriculture software where they can detect disease threats earlier and monitor crops and logistics. Using the Morning Farm Report and AB InBev, there will be global expansion throughout 2018 and beyond.    

    Agrible opened an office in 2013 at the EnterpriseWorks incubator and launched Morning Farm Report soon after. The company now has the goal to increase food production by 60% by 2050.

    Yazmine Carbajal, an industrial-design student, wants to help older people benefit from new technology.

    She recalled the frustrated attempts to assist her 75-year-old grandmother in using an iPad. Shaky hands made it hard for her to use the device’s small buttons, and she kept forgetting the order of multiple functions.

    “I thought, Huh, I don’t know how she uses this,” said Carbajal, 23, who attends the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    This past summer, she was in the right place to help. Carbajal interned at the Tech Nest, AARP’s technology design lab, where a colorful mural urges staffers to “disrupt aging.”

    Older adults are already using voice-activated and touch-screen systems at home, making it easier to age in place, and self-driving vehicles may improve mobility. But anyone who’s ever squinted at a smartphone screen or poked at a tiny tablet keyboard knows that technology could work better.

    That’s why AARP established the Tech Nest, which opened its doors in June 2016.

    That’s why the world’s largest brewer and user of malt barley is investing in an innovative analytics capability to improve the cost, efficiency and quality of its barley production while minimizing impacts to the environment.

    Using agriculture software by Agrible Inc., AB InBev wants to provide farmers worldwide access to better data and predictive analytics on crop management and climate effects.

    “We are the biggest user of malted barley, so it was up to us to make sure barley remains sustainable and competitive so farmers will want to continue growing it,” says Katie Hoard, global director of ag innovation for AB InBev.

    “WE ARE THE BIGGEST USER OF MALTED BARLEY, SO IT WAS UP TO US TO MAKE SURE BARLEY REMAINS SUSTAINABLE AND COMPETITIVE SO FARMERS WILL WANT TO CONTINUE GROWING IT.”

    AB InBev farmers will gain access to Agrible’s Morning Farm Report agriculture software, which helps growers detect disease threats earlier, improve logistics planning, monitor crops on all fields and improve quality.
