Research Team Participation

Participating on a research team provides members the opportunity to contribute to the research project and be a part of a unique professional development opportunity. Each research team includes 18-20 industry volunteers and one or more principal investigators, who are academic researchers representing leading U.S. universities.

Why should you and your company participate on a CII Research Team?
  1. Work with and learn from the best of the best in Academia and Industry
  2. Learn to think about things from new and different perspectives
  3. Understand in detail the issues surrounding the topic being investigated
  4. Be part of a team creating results that will move you, your company and the industry forward
What is involved in participating on a CII research team?
  1. Project durations are nominally two years
  2. Face-to-face 1 day meetings once every 2 to 3 months with shared hosting responsibilities
  3. Web meetings and/or conference calls are held between face-to-face meetings
  4. You must think and be willing to get outside the box

The Industry team members bring the necessary domain expertise, influence, and access to support the research. Leadership of the team is the responsibility of the Chair, who is supported by the Vice-chair and the academic researchers.

The Principal investigator (PI), the process expert, provides the necessary research, quantitative, and analytical expertise to the team.
