Benefits of Joining GRAPES

The benefits of membership in GRAPES to our industry partners are widespread, from strategic to logistic to interpersonal.

All Sponsors will have non-exclusive rights to the entire GRAPES research portfolio under the conditions outlined in the Membership Agreement. Reports, papers, theses, dissertations, and the like produced as the result of the Center’s programs, including those which have commercial value, will be made available free of charge to members in a timely manner, subject to foreign export and confidentiality restrictions as well as other restrictions that may be imposed by a sponsor.

All Sponsors will have an opportunity to directly contribute to GRAPES research and education programs by serving as industrial mentors and/or thesis committee members as appropriate and consistent with the policies and procedures of participating Universities. Members will have ongoing interactions with and access to the Center, including its faculty staff and students.

All Sponsors will have an opportunity to propose case study problems, specific research problems, and focus areas for research. Additional benefits may be established by bylaws approved by the Board of Directors.
