Somnio Global is an advanced Scientific Research and Development organization. We are dedicated to developing technological solutions to some of the world’s most significant problems and our vision is to develop and enable positive and sustainable innovation that is both socially impactful and commercially viable.
At Somnio Global we dare to dream.
We believe, as Thomas Edison did, that the true measure of success is the sale – the ultimate proof of utility. Our creative process combines commercial discipline with a relentless endeavor and commitment to bringing technological solutions to those most in need.
Founded in 2012, Somnio Global is privately owned and operates from its 115,000 square foot, state-of-the-art research facility headquartered on its 25 acre campus in Detroit, Michigan (United States). We formed the company to translate scientific innovations into successful commercial solutions.
Somnio utilizes a platform approach to its research and development, ensuring maximum utilization of its infrastructure and scientific capability. The Company has extensive in-house fabrication capabilities, including the most advanced additive and subtractive manufacturing equipment available while our laboratories support our multi-disciplinary teams with state-of-the-art engineering and analytical equipment. Solid commercial outcomes and clear success criteria guide our research teams who are supported by a complete range of business management services.
From Concept to Customer
Our end-to-end innovation process combines science, engineering design, low-volume manufacturing and commercial analytics required to develop and successfully launch new solutions to global markets. Somnio Global leverages the scientific research capabilities normally found in academia, government research bodies, or large multi-national organizations, but in an agile, for-profit commercial context.
A team of more than 30 commercial innovators has filed 12 patents and launched five start-up companies, all designed to capture the potential of technologies currently under development. We’ve used our success to create government, commercial and international agreements that Somnio Global expects will become transformative.
We have operating relationships and agreements with a range of organizations, including:
U.S. Department of Defense, Ford Motor Company, National Science Foundation, Hyundai Motors, Argonne National Laboratory, Michigan Agri-Business Association, National Research Institute (UK), Water Resources Group (Australia), Michigan Economic Development Corporation
