Industrial Affiliates Programs

Main content start

Industrial Affiliates Programs at Stanford provide a mechanism for multiple faculty and multiple companies to discuss and explore broad research topics in a pre-competitive environment.

Affiliates Programs follow the rules that govern gifts. While member companies may offer suggestions, faculty must be free to select research and teaching topics, methodology, and participants. Typical membership benefits include invitations to meetings and workshops, opportunities to engage with program faculty and students, opportunities to recruit students, and invitations to send visiting scholars.
