The key focus of the Industrial Partnerships Program is to promote beneficial collaborations between industry representatives and the extensive materials expertise developed by over 110 CCMR faculty members from 12 different departments. Relationships are cultivated through a variety of activities, including: joint research projects; problem-solving, semester-long projects with matching funds from NYSTAR; symposia, and workshops. Some of these programs are specifically designed to support NY State startups and small businesses.
