Benefits of Membership

Benefits of membership in the WBC Industry/University Cooperative Research Center, I/UCRC, are centered around industry-directed research, the education of future professionals, and networking within the unique environment of the Center. Additional funding available only to NSF I/UCRC centers significantly leverage membership fees toward a greater research effort not possible by an one individual. All member companies sign a Membership Agreement, protecting their interests in the event of IP development.

Further description of member benefits for the new WBC I/UCRC are under development.
