Mission and Vision

UMII’s mission is to increase opportunities for research support and to efficiently and effectively move research outcomes from campus labs into society.  We do this through an institutional commitment to responsiveness, agility, flexibility and timeliness in dealing with sponsors, collaborators, faculty and external stakeholders.  UMII enables the University of Massachusetts Amherst to expand the impact of its research in new directions, with new partners, and through creative approaches to collaboration.

Our vision is for UMII to impact regional and national economic growth by ensuring that knowledge and technology developed at UMass are rapidly and broadly disseminated to advance the nation’s social and economic interests. 


New AddFab Facilities
UMII is partnering with UMass Dartmouth and UMass Lowell in an effort to increase the innovative capabilities of manufacturers within the Commonwealth. We are working with the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development in order to better serve the people of the Commonwealth. On November 8th we will be hosting a workshop to teach local manufacturers how to use the facilities. If you are an interested manufacturing company click the link below to register today.
