IRI's Statement about Black Lives Matter

We Stand in Solidarity #BlackLivesMatter

Over the past two weeks, IRI has stood in solidarity and remained absent from social media as a sign of respect. We can no longer remain silent. We are outraged by the murder of George Floyd and countless other Black Americans. The violent reaction by police and the use of military forces and chemical weapons against Americans protesting peacefully is appalling.


IRI is the Innovation Research Interchange

Formerly the Industrial Research Institute, we are home to a worldwide network of cross-industry leaders driving innovation and new growth – representing small specialty companies, large global corporations, government labs, and everyone in between.
