Why Partner with Polyplexus?
Polyplexus is an online community dedicated to evidence-based conversation. Polyplexus disrupts the research paradigm by rewarding and connecting innovators outside traditional research silos to accelerate cross-sector, multidisciplinary knowledge production.
What can you do with an online evidence-based conversation? Whatever you want.
Government can use it to quickly refine topics. Industry can use it to explore potential research topics or recruiting. Universities can use it to help students explore thesis ideas. Individuals can use it to just exercise their brain.
“Polyplexus is an online community dedicated to evidence-based conversation for all.”
One of the best ways to use the platform is to think about new ideas.
- Evidence lays the foundation for the online conversation.
- Conjectures spur thought and ignite conversation.
- Incubator discussions, both asynchronous and live, allow the community to explore specific questions.
- Portfolios organize thoughts privately or with invited Plexors.

“We work in a small, specialized organization. Polyplexus is unique in the way it helps us break out of our professional stovepipes, connecting us to a group that is diverse in technical knowledge and perspective.”
Dr. Michael Fiddy
“It’s great to have this innovative platform that allows me to connect directly with the broader creative, scientific community and accelerate innovation in this area.”
Dr. Bill Carter
“I received ideas from the community I had not considered in my original topic of interest that compelled me to refine my request and the scope of exploration. The abstracts submitted were diverse and thought-provoking and we funded several.”
“The best part of the Polyplexus Incubators is speed to results. We were able to do a year’s worth of quality knowledge capture with three Incubators over just a few months.”
Dr. Jan Vandenbrande
“It’s a great opportunity – to engage with a network of researchers as they share emerging science, see how the ideas evolve, and take part in the conversation.”
“I’m looking forward to seeing the ideas that Plexors put forth. It will be all the more the interesting if the Evidence and Conjectures come from an array of disciplines.”
Polyplexus Launch Case Study
Polyplexus attracts participants from over 185 academic institutions and 378 companies and non-profits.
