Industry Affiliates Program


Let’s Drive Innovation Together

To advance nanoscience research and education driven by both curiosity-inspired and use-inspired studies, VINSE has established an Industry Affiliates Program (IAP) designed to foster dynamic and collaborative relations with domestic and international industry leaders. Industry members will have an opportunity to develop relationships with students and faculty at networking events, as well as to demonstrate the capabilities of their products to the VINSE community. All IAP membership funds will remain within VINSE and will be used to support self-sustaining networking events. Any residual funds will be used to support VINSE students, faculty, and infrastructure.
