Overview of the Affiliates Program

Program Highlights

newBatteries Affiliates Group formed to focus on batteries and similar electronic energy storage, including supercapacitors.

Fellow-Mentor-Advisor Program provides our members with enhanced access to research-in-progress, close interactions with researchers working on innovative solutions to challenges in the energy and environment fields, mentor recognition within the Stanford community, and strategic recruitment opportunities with our students.

Activities and Events include two major conferences per year, three new faculty seminars, plus other custom meetings.

Program Objectives

  • Engage companies and other organizations in Stanford research in energy, environment, materials, chemistry, and sustainability.
  • Encourage organizations to participate and provide a real-world perspective.
  • Team faculty and graduate students with industry representatives on research projects.
  • Provide financial support for research and education.
  • Select focal areas which represent rich opportunities for developing timely and appropriate solutions.
  • Create a forum where companies, foundations, and universities can exchange best practices and pursue out-of-the-box ideas.
  • Foster more rapid commercialization of working solutions.

The Energy and Environment Affiliates Program is a partnership between member industrial firms and Stanford University.

The program supports advanced research, policy study, outreach, and education across a broad range of issues at the intersection of energy and environmental science, materials and chemistry, technology, and policy. In addition, it provides a means for member organizations to not only directly support our activities, but to be involved more closely than they could otherwise with Stanford's research activities in these areas.
