How Corporations Can Gain Access to the CUNY CAT’s Facilities, Programs, Patents and Intellectual Property

The CUNY CAT serves as a portal into the scientific and engineering resources of The City University of New York.  The CAT leadership team has access to University faculty and researchers from all campuses and disciplines.  If your company or business is seeking assistance with technical issues or with new technology, one call to the CUNY CAT will begin the process of connecting you with the University people and laboratories best positioned to help you.  When this results in an agreement for a company to fund work at the University, the CUNY CAT contributes additional funds to enhance the amount of work that benefits the company.  Other benefits to industry include reduced overhead charged to industry-supported projects, proposal assistance to compete for government grants and contracts and training of company personnel in the use of advanced technology.
