I/UCRC: Mission and Vision
Mission:
   To contribute to the nation’s research infrastructure base by
    developing long-term partnerships among industry, academe and
    government
   To leverage NSF funds with industry to support graduate students
    performing industrially relevant research

Vision:
   To expand the innovation capacity of our nation’s competitive
    workforce through partnerships between industries and
    universities
     I/UCRCs enable discovery and
     innovation through collaboration
                                                                 Center catalyzed by a small

          Comments, questions, and concerns from the transcribed LIFE forms are discussed
          during the IAB meeting prior to making project funding recommendations.

          Bottom Line:
          • What makes the project so “hot” or “transformational”?
          • How can we improve this project?
          • Real-time project revisions are encouraged if needed.
