Center for UMass/Industry Research on Polymers (CUMIRP)
The oldest National Science Foundation established Industry / University Cooperative Research Center (NSF-I/UCRC), since 1980, has evolved into a dynamic Center program. CUMIRP's mission is to act as a crossroads where the University Research and Education meet with Industrial and Government partners in polymer science and engineering at UMass.

Commercial Ventures & Intellectual Property (CVIP)
The Commercial Ventures and Intellectual Property office at UMass Amherst is responsible for evaluating, protecting and commercializing UMass research that may have commercial value through licensing to startup companies and appropriate commercial firms. A complimentary objective is to create a business and industry-friendly system that promotes research collaboration at UMass Amherst and subsequent commercialization of valuable inventions. CVIP also manages the patenting process, working with outside patent counsel to protect University intellectual property (IP) in the United States and abroad.

MassNanoTech Institute
MassNanoTech, the research institute for nanotechnology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, coordinates research on nanoscale materials, devices and systems, collaborates with industry, advances nanotechnology commercialization, educates students, and fosters outreach activities.

National Nanomanufacturing Network
The National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) is an alliance of academic, government and industry partners that cooperate to advance nanomanufacturing strength in the U.S. The mission of the NNN is to serve as a catalyst for progress in nanomanufacturing in the U.S., through the facilitation and promotion of nanomanufacturing workshops, roadmapping, inter-institutional collaborations, technology transition, test beds, and information exchange services. The NNN operates as an open-access network of centers, leaders, experts, and stakeholders from the nanomanufacturing research, development, and education community. It is a partnership between academia, industry and government that is built to foster and serve nanomanufacturing communities of practice.
