The National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers Program (I/UCRC) develops long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. The centers are catalyzed by a small investment from the NSF and are primarily supported by industry center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in their development and evolution.

Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize 1) whether the applicant is seeking a planning or center grant; 2) existing and future collaborative relationships among academic, industry and other partners; and 3) the proposed research agenda and its interest to the industry partner(s).
