In our efforts to support research, interface with industry partners and connect with the campus and outside community, QI offers a variety of services to meet a growing number of research, engineering, and creative needs. Members of the public -- in addition to the campus community -- are invited to book a tour of our wide-ranging facilities, host an event at one of our venues or request assistance from our professionally trained experts in audio/visual support, creative services and editorial services. We offer a multitude of services that directly support research, including several high-tech laboratories and scientific visualization facilities, and make available experienced faculty and staff who can help at all stages of the innovation process, from Kickstarter campaigns to the testing of new prototype technologies. All services are available to UC San Diego clients at internal rates via recharge or %FTE of personnel, and services are also available to external customers via service contracts and other payment mechanisms.
