CPES Mini-Consortium Program
The CPES mini-consortium program provides a unique forum for creating synergy among industries and defining new research directions to meet future industry needs. The formation of the mini-consortium allows CPES to pool resources and focus on developing pre-competitive technologies to address common challenges, and sharing the research results among mini-consortium members.
Mini-consortium members are enrolled in CPES as Principal Plus Members, with annual contribution of $50,000. They gain tangible benefits via research collaboration with CPES as a member of one of the mini-consortia on focused research:
Companies interested in more than one focused research areas may join another mini-consortium for an additional annual contribution of $50,000 each.
Mini-consortium members also enjoy the advantage of having a designated student contact and window to CPES.
