Prospective Partners

Partnering at Centennial

Centennial Campus welcomes companies and organizations to become part of its research campus “community.”

How is a partnership defined?

Centennial Campus defines a “partner” as an organization or company that has a stated desire to “engage in appropriate and meaningful ways with the University.” In other words, corporate and government partners seek robust and mutually beneficial relationships with faculty and/or students, thereby adding value for both the partner and the University.

Interactions include, but are not limited to:

  • Working with students (including hiring part-time, intern and recent graduates and those involved in senior projects)
  • Working with faculty (either in a formal or informal capacity)
  • Lab or equipment sharing
  • Curriculum input
  • Sponsored research
  • Co-development of intellectual assets
  • Patent licenses
  • Guest speaking and adjunct faculty engagements

To facilitate partnering, these questions are asked:

  • Do your activities align with the academic and/or research activities of NC State University?
  • Do you have an existing relationship with NCSU? If not, do you intend to have one and what will that entail?
