Industrial Sponsors Program

The Center’s Industrial Sponsors Program embodies the principal mechanisms for industry-university cooperation as they have evolved over the Center’s three decades of operation. The tangible benefits of such cooperation are many and include joint research programs, publications, and patents, as well as significant opportunities for support through established industry-university cooperative research funding mechanisms.

Options for Sponsorship

Participation in the Center Industrial Sponsors Program may be established or renewed annually via one of the following 6 options:

  1. Membership fee of $10,000
  2. Total gifts to CCST faculty of $30,000
  3. Gifts in kind of $30,000
  4. Graduate student fellowship
  5. Research contract to support a graduate student or a postdoc
  6. Joint research grant of $60,000 or more

The first four options above represent forms of unrestricted gifts and are subject to only nominal indirect costs. Research contracts may involve specific work statements, patent and publication terms, and are subject to standard University indirect cost rates.

Benefits to Sponsor

All industrial sponsors, regardless of the sponsorship mechanism chosen, can benefit from the full portfolio of Center research activities. The Center mounts a number of programs designed to provide early access to non-proprietary research results including:

  • An annual research review at which the results of ongoing Center research programs are presented
  • An annual report of the Center’s research activities and accomplishments

Other benefits to our sponsoring companies include:

  • Access to CCST facilities and faculty
  • Interaction with CCST collaborators
  • Recruitment of students
  • Access to Center software
