A path to research collaborations

While valuable in themselves, Associate Partner benefits also provide a natural path to specific collaborations in ISR. These are made possible through additional partnership opportunities, including:

— A specific percentage of dues is allocated to ISR research and education programs of high interest to the partner. 

— The “Visiting Scientist” benefit allows strategic partner employees to work on campus, conducting research with ISR faculty for extended periods of time.

  • Any of the following partnership vehicles:

— Research collaborations, including industry-sponsored research

— Teaming to win agency-sponsored programs including Maryland Industrial Partnerships for local, small, and start-up companies

— Intellectual property licensing

— Systems engineering courses, workshops and events

— International research agreements

— Sponsorship of graduate student fellowships and postdoctoral researchers

— Gifts to ISR, including chair endowments, scholarships, gifts of cash, hardware and software, and lab sponsorships
