Companies may establish a sponsored research program with any CUNY Faculty member to gain access to that faculty member’s (and their students’) unique expertise.  Here the intellectual center and drive for the project centers with the faculty member not with the sponsor. This is typically a longer term interaction that does not involve deliverables. These arrangements and the disposition of intellectual property are between the company and the faculty member.

If you have an interest in perusing a sponsored research program, feel free to contactJacob Trevino ( for more information and he can direct you to the most appropriate channel within CUNY.
