Affiliates Programs at Stanford University School of Engineering

When companies get together around a university industry affiliates program, it implies a hotspot of innovation.  As an example we've made a list of industry affiliate programs within one particular School and added Visible Legacy Navigator links to help Tech Scouts find these interesting areas of research.

We wrote recently about the impact of industrial affiliates funding academic research. To help Tech Scouts who want to keep an eye on the outputs and innovations from these organizations and programs, here is a list of what we have mapped around Stanford University School of Engineering (SoE) as of March 2019.  We will continuously add more details about context and metrics.

As mentioned in the linked article, the Stanford Center for Integrated Systems (CIS) was the beginning of Industrial Affiliate programs at Stanford and has become a role model for such programs at other universities.  CIS is now re-branded as "Stanford SystemX" and is a good first example to check out. In the following list the "VL Navigator" link opens our map in a new tab. The "Affiliates Page" link takes you directly to Stanford's affiliates page for that group. Please also visit Stanford's site.
