Consortium Benefits
Joining the ISN Industry Consortium offers a range of benefits to companies, based on level of participation. These include:
  • Access to cutting-edge research in diverse nanotechnologies, such as multi-functional materials, mechanical actuators, energy absorbing materials for ballistic protection, chemical/biological sensors and protection, far forward medical treatment, biomedical engineering, process engineering, mathematical modeling and simulation, and systems integration.
  • Collaboration with MIT faculty and students in state-of-the-art nanoscience and engineering laboratories.
  • Opportunity for licensing ISN inventions.
  • Opportunity to participate in research planning and to commission ISN research targeted to soldier needs of particular relevance to the industry sponsor.
  • Knowledge of U.S. Army's development efforts for new soldier technology.
  • Early access to technology commercialization opportunities.
  • Opportunity to compete for substantial peer reviewed Army funding (6.2) to enable accelerated transitioning of ISN innovations to commercial technologies.
