The IUCRC program catalyzes breakthrough pre-competitive research by enabling close and sustained engagement between industry innovators, world-class academic teams, and government agencies.

IUCRCs help industry partners and government agencies connect directly and efficiently with university researchers to achieve three primary objectives:

  • Conduct high-impact research to meet shared and critical industrial needs in companies of all sizes;
  • Enhance U.S. global leadership in driving innovative technology development, and
  • Identify, mentor and develop a diverse, highly skilled science and engineering workforce.

The program currently supports 80+ Centers with 120+ participating universities and 800+ research-intensive member organizations involved. Learn more at iucrc.nsf.gov.
