Interested organizations can join the CDMI by becoming part of the Industrial Advisory Board. The IAB advises the CDMI’s management on all aspects of the Center, from research project selection, execution, and evaluation, to the Center’s long-term strategic planning. This extensive industrial involvement in both research planning and review bridges a gap that traditionally keeps US industry from capitalizing fully and quickly on the fruits of research at US universities.
