CAMP Values Partnerships with Industry

Clarkson’s Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) provides its industrial partners with expert assistance in solving their problems and the potential for significant advances in technology. CAMP invites and encourages all levels of engagement including task order (TO) contracts, research agreements, analytical service agreements, or grants and gifts.  CAMP serves as facilitator for closing the deal and ensuring customer satisfaction to organizations doing cooperative / collaborative research with Clarkson University.

National and international corporations fund research collaborations at CAMP.  However, much of the new business outreach is geared to New York State companies. This is because CAMP is funded by the Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology, and Innovation (NYSTAR). Therefore, companies that operate in the state of New York are eligible for financial support or cost sharing if they want to invest in CAMP research collaborations.

In addition, CAMP offers membership status at three different levels. NOTE: Some or most of the membership funds can be used to support research tasks of interest to the member company.

CAMP Hosts First Faculty Mixer

The Center for Advanced Materials Processing hosted the first Faculty Mixer on November 1, 2016 in the CAMP Building Atrium.  The new quarterly event is designed for research faculty members from across campus to gather socially and share ideas.  Information on CAMP industry relationships and policy changes were also shared with attending faculty.   It is the hope of Marilyn Freeman, Director, and Elisabeth Cain, Business Development Manager, that this event series will spark positive relationships among faculty leading to cross-collaborative efforts in research that are highly attractive to our industry partners.
