We believe that productive relationships with industry go well beyond recruitment of our students. Corporate partnerships can accelerate innovation and discovery leading to signficant scientific and commercial impact. They can also result in opportunities for students to learn from skilled practioners and academic work that translates into real-world skills that are valued in the marketplace.
We tailor corporate relationships to be mutually beneficial by offering a wide variety of options to engage with the CIS community, including research grants, matching funds for proposals, graduate student fellowships, student projects and student event sponsorships. If you are interested in exploring a partnership with CIS, or would like to schedule a visit to campus, please contact Laura Batten, Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at 607.255.3952.
