The Affiliates Program is supported by corporate membership fees and is designed to facilitate the relationship between academia and industry. Members are entitled to the full range of benefits including invitations to all SCITS Affiliates Program symposia, opportunity to support Ph.D. student research, and facilitated access to research programs, faculty, and graduate students.
Companies and other organizations having interests in scientific, operational, and regulatory issues associated with managing the risk posed by induced and triggered earthquakes are eligible to join.
Member companies represent a broad spectrum of industries. They share an interest in induced and triggered seismicity research and in gaining and maintaining a competitive advantage in their commercial efforts. The Affiliates Program is supported by corporate membership fees of $50,000 per year and is designed to facilitate the relationship between academia and industry. Companies may provide additional funding to be used to support a particular area of research identified on our website, or the research of a listed SCITS faculty member. In either instance, the director of the Affiliate Program will determine how the additional funding will be used in the program’s research. All research results arising from the use of the additional funding will be shared with all program members and the general public.
All SCITS Memberships are subject to Stanford University Policies for Industry Affiliates Programs. All research results funded by our affiliates fees are shared with all program members and the public.
Invitation to Stanford Events
Informal interactions between companies and Stanford researchers are augmented by symposia and workshops. These events provide members with opportunities to hear from experts at Stanford to address the variety of scientific, operational and regulatory issues associated with the managing the risk posed by induced and triggered earthquakes. Members will be exposed to ideas and technology that may impact their businesses in the future. These events are also networking opportunities, providing an opportunity to interact with customers, competitors and partners in a relaxed environment.
While Stanford promotes openness in our research results and takes pride in the University’s role as a credible and impartial resource, Affiliates Programs can facilitate contact with Stanford researchers at a high level, targeted to areas that will best serve members' interests.
