edgelab (typically expressed with a leading lowercase "e") is an applied academic research lab, established in 2000 as a partnership between General Electric and the University of Connecticut.[1][2]

edgelab approaches GE Businesses three times per year, identifying key strategic initiatives for program execution. 15 projects are selected each year (five per semester) and students, faculty, and on-site GE staff work on these projects full-time for the 13-week session.

The edgelab program was discontinued in Spring 2011. The School of Business and General Electric have announced their plans to continue the relationship by creating a new joint venture.[1][3][4]
