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:
- Membership in ISR’s Strategic Partners Program. Benefits include:
— 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
