The Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRCs) program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academia, and government. The centers are catalyzed by a small investment from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and are primarily supported by industry center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in their development and evolution. Each center is established to conduct research that is of interest to both the industry and the center. An I/UCRC contributes to the United States' research infrastructure base and enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education.

Because MU is limited to two applications for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 4:00 p.m. Friday, March 7, 2008. 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).
