Industrial Affiliate Programs (IAPs)
Industry Affiliates Programs (IAPs) provide a gateway for private sponsors and University researchers to explore broad research topics of mutual interest. Basic research programs conducted under IAPs are supported by multiple companies through annual membership fees. Because IAPs do not grant intellectual property rights or require deliverables, members gain access to the University’s research programs and relevant faculty and students without paying indirect costs or overhead.
For information on establishing an IAP or entering into an IAP, read the Policy for Establishing Industrial Affiliates Programs, the IAP Instructions, or contact the Office of Industry Engagement. You can download the IAP Agreement template from the OIE Agreement Templates page.
