Indiana Innovation Institute (IN3)

The Indiana Innovation Institute (IN3) is an applied research institute established to rapidly and efficiently transition next generation basic research into products and solutions to solve emerging technical challenges for the Department of Defense (DoD) and industry. IN3 brings together the best minds in government, industry and academia to work on cutting-edge technology and transform ideas to capabilities.

INnovation in MicroElectronics Consortium (INMEC)


Semiconductors are the key components that drive the operation of critical electronic systems in both the commercial and military sectors. However, the security and integrity of the microelectronics that control our electronics is under increasing hardware and software-based attacks which puts large portions of our economy and national security at risk.   

The Indiana Innovation Institute (IN3) and our strategic partners are working on technologies which help to counter these issues and have applications in nearly all electronic devices. The technologies under development by our team in trusted microelectronics have a number of applications including increasing reliability, anti-counterfeiting, anti-tamper, and hardware security.


We identify and assemble purpose-built teams from the government, industry, DoD, and couple it with world class expertise from top research universities to create a collaborative environment for driving innovation to the microelectronics industry.


Working together, consortium members uncover pressing requirements and organize their capabilities. Together, we generate the momentum to solve our toughest defense challenges. By joining the consortium, your business can be part of this exchange. The consortium provides a platform to showcase your company’s latest solution. It provides access to current and relevant defense technology, procurement and policy issues, and can provide a feedback loop to highlight new opportunities to maximize the defense potential of your company.
