How To Collaborate with C3PS



Innovations that solve societal problems and lead to positive economic impacts often result from collaboration between research-intensive universities and external partners. Therefore, the impact of innovation ecosystems, where invention, insight and translations of ideas to products which happen through a systematic collective outcome of companies, non-profits, government agencies, educational and research institutions working together, is unparalleled.





Industry Engagement Modes and Methods

The C3PS vision is to enable a global ecosystem in support of the co-design of chips,packages, and systems that engages industry, academia, and government agencies during the performance of basic research through to the realization of new products which incorporate new or incremental discoveries. Towards this goal, the C3PS industry engagement model consists of a multi-level, tiered-value proposition for industry participation with Georgia Tech academic and research faculty, programs and centers.

Contract Continuum

At Georgia Tech, investing in research is a top priority. As part of that commitment, the university has developed four contract mechanisms that enable industry to engage with Georgia Tech researchers at all stages of R&D. These agreements were carefully crafted to streamline the contracting process and provide straightforward intellectual property terms for companies engaging in collaborative research. The four contracting mechanisms are as follows: -

Basic Research: Explore fundamental challenges in a technical area
Applied Research: Identify solutions to real-world challenges
Demonstration: Improve an existing technology
Specialized Testing: Test new and existing products
