Corporate Collaborations

The Corporate Collaborations team at the USC Stevens Center for Innovation serves as a liaison for USC faculty and industry partners interested in building mutually beneficial relationships aligned with USC core values and industry strategic initiatives and areas of focus.

Our Approach

We take a holistic approach by functioning globally across all USC professional schools, centers, departments and administrative offices and clear the path forward to initiate, grow, and maintain productive collaborations and long-term partnerships.  USC is uniquely positioned to collaborate across the spectrum from the arts and social sciences to engineering or medicine.  This approach allows us to leverage the breadth and depth of expertise at USC and help our partners solve difficult problems that meet a critical need.

Our dedicated team consults regularly with industry to quickly match their corporate strategic interests with the relevant USC faculty and resources.  We offer streamlined services throughout the collaboration lifecycle to maximize agreement time and improve the management of research collaborations from the opportunity stage through delivery of actionable outcomes.
