NSF Support for Centers
• In FY 2001, NSF invested
approximately $334 million in
centers (approximately 10% of
it’s research budget)
Center Configuration

Most centers are located on one university campus
Some centers consist of one lead university with a
small number of core partners
Some centers are consortia led by a team in one
university with nodes at other universities,
companies, government labs, schools or school
districts, and non-profit organizations
Some consortia are tightly integrated among sites
and linked by Internet, videoconferencing, or other
electronic networks to become “virtual centers” or
“centers without walls”

Develop centers to integrate disciplines,
research and education to produce nextgeneration innovations in engineered systems
Develop new generations of engineers, more
effective in industry, better positioned to lead
in a global economy
Develop partnerships between academe,
industry, and government to strengthen the
competitiveness of industry and the Nation

пЃ¬ Industrial
Collaboration
Financial Arrangements
NSF negotiates a formal Cooperative
Agreement with the lead university
пЃ¬ Funds are released to university,
based on satisfactory performance
(annual site visits/reviews)
пЃ¬ University disburses funds using its
normal procedures
пЃ¬
Intellectual Property
пЃ¬ Each
ERC must have a formal
membership agreement
пЃ¬ IP policy is negotiated between
university and industrial members
пЃ¬ Industry members often get royaltyfree, non-exclusive license, with
option for royalty-bearing exclusive
Technology Transfer
пЃ¬ Publications
