Industrial affiliate programs are designed to facilitate the transfer of knowledge to society and the dialogue between academia and industry. Supported by corporate membership fees, these programs provide an avenue for industry to contribute to and sustain research and teaching in Stanford departments and programs of interest. Companies receive facilitated access to research programs and to participating faculty and students. Corporate members typically attend annual meetings, receive copies of reports and publications, and have opportunities to recruit students. Any interested company may join our affiliate program. The current annual costs for membership are $2,500/year.
