Affiliates Program

Program Description

The SURI Affiliates Program is supported by corporate membership fees and is designed to facilitate the relationship between academia and industry. The motivation for the program is for corporate partners to take advantage of the unique expertise at Stanford in Resilience Science and Engineering, an emerging field which combines quantitative engineering analyses to broader questions of social impact and human behavior. Members are entitled to the full range of benefits including invitations to all SURI Affiliates Program symposia, opportunity to support Ph.D. student research, and facilitated access to research programs, faculty, and graduate students.

Companies and other organizations interested in improving risk evaluation and the design of the built environment, social intervention, as well as government, financial, and corporate policies are eligible and encouraged to join.

Participating faculty are listed under the Core Team section on the People section of this SURI webpage.
