In-kind Collaborations

Though university researchers can collaborate with industry in a variety of ways, in-kind collaborations offer an excellent place to begin, often leading to more formal, longer-term collaborations later on.

Examples of in-kind collaborations include letters of support for research initiatives, loaning specialized equipment, providing technological advice and guidance on selected topics, and participating in student projects and courses.

Industry participation is also welcome in student mentoring and in giving presentations and seminars.
