Sponsor research

As a leading public research university, the University of Washington is committed to translating discovery into true public benefit. Supported by more than 280 specialized research centers, our researchers, staff and students collaborate to discover next-generation solutions to today’s challenges.

Companies can sponsor research projects at the UW and partner with our world-class scientists and engineers, and companies have the first opportunity to license inventions that result from their sponsored programs. To learn more about sponsored programs, contact our corporate relations staff. They can introduce you to researchers working in your areas of interest and help get your program started.
