Six Michigan Universities Partnered To Create a University-Business Network


Michigan university partner up for Michigan Corporate Relations Network

Six Michigan universities have partnered to create a university-business network that will assist small to medium-sized companies gain access to various university assets.
The Michigan Corporate Relations Network includes, University of Michigan, University of Michigan-Dearborn, Western Michigan University`, Michigan Technological University and Wayne State University, and will officially launch in early 2012, said Jeff Mason, executive director of the University Research Corridor.
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation will funnel about $1.8 million in funding into the project throughout the next two years to create “one-stop business relations offices” at each of the six universities to connect businesses with university assets in research and provide funding for internship programs, which many businesses of that size can not afford, Mason said

Business-CONNECT is MSU’s business relations branch of the new network and has been doing similar work connecting businesses to university assets for more than a year
