Corporate Engagement

Collaboration between industry and academia is key to accelerating groundbreaking research and discovery that drives technological advancement. Whether corporations are engaging with our students in short term projects, or companies are partnering with our faculty members on pre-competitive projects, the Grainger Institute for Engineering can help facilitate streamlined collaboration efforts that work for all parties involved.


When companies or consortia work with our faculty, we can provide a customizable framework to define each party’s roles and responsibilities. This framework not only reduces the cycle time for collaborative research agreements, but also protects Intellectual Property (IP) within the university while delivering to companies what they need.
