In response to the powerful vision and dynamic programs described in the Academy’s Bicentennial Plan (PDF 198k), many Fortune 500 companies and other influential organizations have joined us to forge strategic partnerships. We look forward to alliances with many more.
The Academy works closely with our corporate sponsors to design arrangements that provide mutual benefits and address particular needs. Many corporate partners choose to sponsor specific Academy activities. In return, benefits of sponsorship may include special access to Frontiers of Science discussion groups, Academy memberships for corporate researchers, and access to eBriefings and the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, to name just a few.
The Academy’s corporate partnership program allows companies to become more deeply involved with many our initiatives, such as our Frontiers of Science discussion groups in the life sciences, physical sciences & engineering, and green science and sustainability. Companies have also chosen to support our Science Meets Business and Scientists Without BordersSM programs. Corporate membership enables our partners to access:
- Our scientific network of over 22,000 members in more than 140 countries
- Our Science Alliance, a network of over 4000 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers—young scientists who will become tomorrow's leaders
- Our network of distinguished leaders in industry, academia, government, and the nonprofit sector involved in our President's Council
Corporate membership in the Academy delivers significant value at multiple levels of an organization, and offers significant opportunities for companies of any size, regardless of geographical location.
