MIT’s Office of Corporate Relations aids and directs companies interested in pursuing significant, multi-year, multi-disciplinary involvement with the Institute.  OCR's expert staff works with MIT senior administration, faculty, and company executives to structure and define individualized alliances that mutually benefit the company and MIT. The result is a holistic industry/university relationship that addresses broad needs and interests, from specific research projects and initiatives, to executive education, technology licensing, and recruitment.

OCR, the organizational parent of the Industrial Liaison Program at MIT, can be instrumental in providing connections to MIT faculty, departments, labs, and centers. It serves companies across the globe and is organized both geographically and by industry. In addition to corporate partners, OCR also helps regional governmental organizations who look to the unique, entrepreneurial MIT/Cambridge environment as they begin to develop their own regional innovation eco-systems.
