Benefits to MIT

We believe the relationship with our Member companies is symbiotic; the MIT community benefits in many ways from the engagement with our industry partners, including:

  • Consortium membership fees support MIT.nano’s operation and provide funds needed for the upkeep and rejuvenation of the MIT.nano toolset.
  • Technical engagement with Member scientists, engineers, and other employees provides a perspective on current industry challenges, opportunities, and potential for real-world impact.
  • A visiting scientist from a Consortium member company can serve as a research advisor to our students, providing unique technical perspectives.
  • Access to tools, processes, technologies, and expertise of our Member institutions.
  • Career opportunities for MIT students, postdocs, and alumni.
  • Engagement with, and support of, MIT startups.
