Resources for Faculty & Staff

Faculty collaboration with industry is increasingly prevalent across campus. Industry partners seek research breakthroughs and hope for many of the same transformational advances that we hope for at the University of Michigan.

How to attract and secure corporate funding varies significantly, depending on the type of research, the faculty relationships, and the industry itself. Complex issues can arise with negotiations for contracts, intellectual property, master research agreements, and publications.

The portal below contains an aggregated list of resources – from white papers to videos to sample partnership models. This portal is designed to help faculty and staff find an overview of corporate partnerships, identify next steps in their proposed partnership, and determine contacts for moving forward.

The most comprehensive resource for faculty and staff at U-M is our team of  BEC Relationship Managers who are adept at helping connect faculty to industry for a variety of research partnerships.
