Our Global Network
With founding partners the University of Washington, Tsinghua University, and Microsoft, GIX is a global collaboration between leading academic and cross-sector partners.
To date, GIX includes eight Academic Network partners, seven Consortium members, and one supporting partner.
Our academic network partners benefit from access to UW research and Seattle’s innovation ecosystem. They also promote GIX programs to their students, connect faculty with relevant areas of research expertise, and may offer projects to GIX learners in connection with industry partners.
We partner with top organizations and nonprofits in the Seattle area to forge long-term relationships that lead to technical exchange, co-invention, and collaboration. Consortium members gain access to the GIX community, and may submit projects for students in the final phase of the curriculum.
