NIU is proud to be a member of the University-Industry
Demonstration Partnership, an organization which was established to further
understanding between commercial entities and academic institutions, and to increase
awareness regarding their differing perspectives. It is our goal to enter into mutually
beneficial agreements with industry partners in order to further both of our
respective missions. We have developed a
summary of NIU’s General
Principles (PDF) in order to facilitate building such agreements.
Together, NIU and its industry partners inspire and
innovate, and we invite you to be part of this effort. The Office of Sponsored Projects' Contracts
and Industry Relations (CIR) Coordinator will assist you in identifying and
accessing resources at NIU to enhance your company's potential. NIU offers a variety of opportunities to suit
your needs, including sponsored research, technology licensing, facility usage,
and strategic giving. Please contact our
CIR Coordinator to learn more about the NIU advantage.
