We are proud to partner with world class universities and research institutes to evaluate the impact of our technologies in the last mile and explore new funding opportunities. We have welcomed research teams from programs including Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) D-Lab, Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and Japan's Keio University to conduct rapid impact assessments of our technology projects. Their research helps us measure the impact of our work and share detailed feedback with technology producers.

We have also worked with consulting teams from schools including Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, Said Business School, University of Oxford and Stanford University to investigate ways to diversify Kopernik's funding sources. Their research has helped guide our marketing initiatives and our entry into the carbon credit market.

We are also grateful for the support provided by universities to our Kopernik Fellows to fund the cost of their fellowships.
