A consortium connects a group of sponsors with a group of faculty and research staff focused on a common agenda. Although a consortium sponsor joins only one consortium, all consortium-level sponsors have access to the breadth of all research conducted at the Institute. In addition, companies at this level of sponsorship can take advantage of our graduate fellows program.
