Synopsis of program:

The I/UCRC program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. The centers are catalyzed by a small investment from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and are primarily supported by industry center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in the development and evolution of the center. Each center is established to conduct research that is of interest to both the industry members and the center faculty. An I/UCRC contributes to the nation’s research infrastructure base and enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education. As appropriate, an I/UCRC uses international collaborations to advance these goals within the global context.

Per IIT policy, all grant applications, federal and non-federal, must be reviewed, signed and submitted by the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs regardless of the amount of the request. Please contact osrp@iit.edu or call at 312.567.3035 for more information on submitting a proposal.
