Becoming a Sponsor
By becoming a SERC research sponsor, US Government organizations can easily engage more than 150 thought leaders at 20 leading research and academic institutions to solve complex, contemporary systems engineering problems. The process begins when an organization identifies a problem requiring SE research. They should contact the SERC to discuss the problem and determine if it is within the scope of the SERC's mission. If it is, then the organization refines the research need and the SERC responds with its technical approach, cost estimate and potential value for the research. The SERC then selects a Principal Investigator and a team of the most appropriate researchers to perform the research and deliver the results and value to the funding organization. Unless specifically limited, the results are published and available for inclusion in education and transition activities across the systems engineering community.
