The University of Colorado Boulder is one of the nation’s leading research universities, with world-class facilities, personnel and capabilities.

CU Boulder’s Industry & Foundation Relations (IFR) team is dedicated to building collaborative, mutually beneficial relationships with industry partners and foundations.

In January 2020, the Corporate and Foundation Relations team, the Office of Industry Collaboration and the industry and foundation-focused teams within the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the Leeds School of Business combined to form the IFR team, which reports jointly to Advancement and the Research & Innovation Office.

The streamlined IFR team is part of the university’s effort to deliver “a partner-centric strategy and an on-campus support team that aligns financial investment in the research, discovery and creativity of Boulder’s faculty and students with satisfied corporate and foundation partners.”
