Caltech-Industry partnerships can take many different forms. The Corporate Partnerships team can help you identify the best structure for supporting your collaborations. Some of the more common partnerships include…
Corporate funding of a research project of common interest for a specific term allows for a mutually beneficial relationship. With a defined scope of work and budget, a work agreement with deliverables can lead to larger, multi-PI projects.
Corporate philanthropy often reflects corporate priorities while increasing awareness of your company on campus. Gifts in support of research provide unrestricted funding for an academic division, scientific discipline, or research center. Your giving helps provide seed funding for research projects, graduate fellowships, or programmatic support.
These are robust, multi-year agreements with companies that are well-aligned & committed to a long-term partnership with Caltech. Offering high visibility across campus, each agreement is crafted to an individual partner's needs.
