Industry Membership


Innovative Research Between the University and Corporate Partners

CASRE membership provides an opportunity to help plan and guide research that enhances benefits to their companies while avoiding the cost of in-house facilities and staff or consultant fees. It provides an opportunity to address the needs of industry members and help define research projects that are relevant and useful to member companies’ short-term and long-term needs. We have a history of working with members to develop new research ideas and seek new opportunities for this type of collaboration.
