Fujitsu Laboratories of America Joins WNCG Industrial Affiliate Program

Thursday, April 13, 2017

Fujitsu Laboratories of America recently joined the WNCG Industrial Affiliate Program as a Level Two Member.

Founded in Silicon Valley, Fujitsu Laboratories extends the reach of Fujitsu Research and Development to integrate information and communications technology into daily life. They work with top universities, research institutions, standards groups and the startup venture community. Their research focuses on healthcare, education, and smart energy as well as technical areas such as platform technology, network systems, computer security, software validation and wireless communications.

The WNCG Industrial Affiliate Program allows companies to become stakeholders in WNCG and to participate in the growth and direction of the center. Initially founded to significantly lower the cost of pre-competitive research for each sponsor, the program maximizes benefits to each sponsoring company.

In addition to benefiting from regular interaction with 130 graduate students and 22 top faculty, affiliates receive special access to high-quality students for recruitment purposes, first views of research publications and business opportunities for joint research collaborations. Affiliate interaction has inspired many graduate student dissertations and created a fertile recruiting ground for affiliate companies.

Aside from providing a strong return-on-investment for affiliate companies, the Industrial Affiliate Program also benefits WNCG. By creating a stable financial base, WNCG researchers are able to attract more government-sponsored grants from organizations such as the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense and others, which furthers the reach and capabilities of WNCG research. A portion of each membership fee directly supports WNCG research programs, faculty and students.
