The Industry/University Cooperative
Research Centers (I/UCRC) Program
Mission:
•
•
To contribute to the nation’s research
infrastructure base by developing
long-term partnerships among
industry, academe and government
To leverage NSF funds with industry to
support graduate students performing
industrially relevant research
Vision:
•
To expand the innovation capacity of
our nation’s competitive workforce
through partnerships between
industries and universities
Over 30 years of fostering long-term
trusted relationships between
Industry and academe based on
shared value

I/UCRC Approach
• Provide the framework for industry to realize ongoing value
from university fundamental research
• NSF Seeds Activity, Centers succeed based on value they
provide to their members, faculty.

First Dear Colleague Letter to Community July 3, 2013
– Nurture a globally engaged STEM workforce capable of performing in
an international cooperative research environment spanning
academe, industry, and government
– Support for U.S. students to conduct high-quality, industrially relevant
research abroad in collaboration with international investigators at
university, public, and private sector labs
– Support the objectives of an I/UCRC’s research roadmap
– Build the collaborative relationships necessary for the successful
establishment of an I/UCRC international site
