<p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:

The Centers are catalyzed by an investment from the National Science Foundation
(NSF) and are primarily supported by industry Center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in the development and evolution of the Center.
Each Center is established to conduct research that is of interest to both the industry members and the Center faculty.
An IUCRC contributes to the nation's research infrastructure base and enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education.
As appropriate, an IUCRC uses international collaborations to advance these goals within the global context.
