One of the ways Arizona State University is redefining the 21st-century research university is through the work of the university's Knowledge Enterprise Development (KED) team. KED advances research, innovation, strategic partnerships, entrepreneurship, global and economic development at ASU, and provides the support faculty and students need to make their research aspirations a reality.

ASU's interdisciplinary, solutions-focused approach to research was one of the reasons the university earned the distinction of being named the most innovative school in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.

KED's leaders are focused on changing the paradigm for higher education and creating an institution that will meet the demands of an increasingly knowledge-dependent world.
