Arrowhead Center connects industry with NMSU faculty, researchers, students, and labs to help expand a company’s capacities and capabilities in research and development. Opportunities available to industry partners include four mechanisms. Basic research allows industry partners the opportunity to license intellectual property (IP) resulting from research. Applied research allows industry partners to access NMSU’s faculty and students to explore the viability of technologies and overcome practical challenges. Prototyping/Proof of concept allows companies to access NMSU’s resources without compromising a company’s IP. Specialized testing allows partners access to NMSU’s equipment without making a large capital investment; partners own all test results.
