Tyler Invention Greenhouse

Seeding, and driving, green product innovation

The Tyler Invention Greenhouse builds upon the UO’s strength in green chemistry, design and innovation to accelerate the infusion of greener products into society – tapping basic research discoveries to meet the compelling national need for sustainable products.

The Tyler Invention Greenhouse was founded with a $500,000 gift from the Alice C. Tyler Perpetual Trust, a supporter of UO environmental science projects.

Get Involved

Stop by. Take a tour. Have a conversation.

The Tyler Invention Greenhouse is an open and collaborative “think tank” environment. It is a unique venue for formal coursework and a state-of-the-art facility to foster research and ensure its impact. Students and faculty members from the fields of chemistry, design and entrepreneurship will learn by collaborating on projects to address the needs of society. Their experiences will be shaped through engagement with experts-in-residence, formal and informal problem-solving sessions, and partnerships with local entrepreneurs.

Have a sustainability idea? Trying to invent a new product or solution? Looking for ways to reduce the environmental impact of an existing product or process? Let us know if we can help.

Successful inventors constantly engage in activities that build knowledge and experience around solving problems. Opportunities for students to participate in these kinds of activities are often limited to short, one – off experiences like those associated with a specific course or an annual competition. The Tyler Invention Greenhouse, in collaboration with the Product Design programs and RAIN, provides an alternative approach by creating opportunities for continuous engagement, where the tools of green chemistry and life cycle thinking are infused throughout the creative process.

The Tyler Invention Greenhouse builds upon the UO’s strengths in sustainability, green chemistry, design and innovation to accelerate the development and enhance market success for greener products. Some of the most expensive and frustrating failures occur when our products or processes unintentionally have an adverse impact on human health and the environment. By integrating the knowledge and experience of a diverse community of creative individuals at the point of invention, and addressing these challenges in a systematic way, one has the potential to significantly improve the success and accelerate the adoption of sustainable products into the market.

On any give day the Tyler Invention Greenhouse is alive with conversation. During a single visit to the facility you can engage with graduate students in STEM disciplines working through Lens of the MarketSM curriculum that provides a rapid introduction to the vocabulary, skills and tools for scientists to evaluate the market potential of their research. Alternatively you can help students refine their product ideas and prototypes by participating in an interdisciplinary design critique with students and faculty from across campus. These types of interactions not only build skills around innovation and product design but they also provide a unique environment for professional development.
