One key mission of the Materials Innovation Platforms is to support the commercialization of materials by design methodology. PARADIM recognizes that industrial users operate under different constraints than academic users and has tailored access procedures to meet these conditions.

Access to PARADIM facilities is available to industry users on a fee-for-service basis. PARADIM recognizes the importance of intellectual property and has crafted its industrial user program to recognize this. Unlike academic proposals which receive a full external review, industrial proposals are only internally reviewed by PARADIM faculty and staff. This review focuses only on safety and materials compatibility issues and feasibility issues; details of potential applications need not be revealed. Of course PARADIM staff can be most helpful when they more fully understand the scope of a particular problem. PARADIM staff can sign non-disclosure agreements as necessary; alternatively, they can merely instruct in equipment use and stand back. Unlike academic users of PARADIM, industrial users retain all data, IP rights, and rights to publication.

Access to PARADIM facilities and expertise is available through this user fee for service mechanism, not the more normal sponsored programs mechanism.

For information about industrial access to PARADIM facilities, please contact Thomas Dienel, Associate Director.
