Industrial Partnership

The Simons Institute actively seeks research collaborations with industry. In 2013, we welcomed Google and Microsoft Research as our Founding Industry Partners. VMware became a Partner in 2018. Amazon Web Services became an Industrial Sponsor in 2019 and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone became a Partner in 2019, and in 2020, we welcomed Swiss Re and J.P. Morgan as Partners.
One of the key benefits of industry partnerships is participation in our annual Industry Day, which will take place on Thursday, November 5. Read more about that here.
