Scientific discovery and industry application have been part of MIT’s innovation engine since 1861. Its varied collaborations have yielded such breakthroughs as radar, the World Wide Web, the internet of things, nanoscale applications, machine learning, and the human genome. The Institute has played an industry-defining role in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, energy, automobiles, 3-D printing, and space exploration.
Today, more than 800 of the world’s leading companies collaborate with MIT researchers. Working together, MIT and industry bring knowledge to bear on the world’s great challenges.
MIT Corporate Relations, the organizational parent of the Industrial Liaison Program at MIT, can be instrumental in providing connections to MIT faculty, departments, labs, and centers. It serves companies across the globe and is organized both geographically and by industry. In addition to corporate partners, MIT Corporate Relations also helps regional governmental organizations who look to the unique, entrepreneurial MIT/Cambridge environment as they begin to develop their own regional innovation eco-systems.
MIT Startup Exchange and the ILP are integrated programs of MIT Corporate Relations. MIT Startup Exchange actively promotes collaboration and partnerships between MIT-connected startups and industry, principally ILP members.
