The mission of the Office of Corporate Relations (OCR) is to create and strengthen mutually beneficial relationships between MIT and corporations and other organizations, measured in part by maximizing the flow of corporate investments to support the basic mission of MIT. OCR implements its mission through the Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and corporate development activities.
Founded in 1948, the ILP is a fee-for-service program today serving approximately 200 companies and organizations worldwide. ILP helps its member organizations harness MIT’s resources to address current challenges and anticipate future opportunities by facilitating access to MIT faculty and research and by helping these organizations to develop productive relationships with MIT.
Corporate development activity includes supporting the senior MIT administration and faculty in efforts to maximize corporate support across the Institute. Initiatives facilitated by our staff include corporate partnerships, strategic corporate research, philanthropic relationships, and large-scale research and educational programs involving governments and universities.
