I/UCRC Program Webinar
Learn about the NSF’s Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) Program.
The National Science Foundation’s Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) Program was initiated in 1973 to develop long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. The National Science Foundation (NSF) invests in these partnerships to promote research programs of mutual interest, contribute to the nation’s research infrastructure base, enhance the intellectual capacity of the engineering or science workforce through the integration of research and education, and facilitate technology transfer. There are currently over 65 I/UCRCs consisting of over 180 university sites and over 1200 industry members.
