Corporate Affiliates Program
PSC's Corporate Affiliates Program enables companies to solve difficult problems and gain competitive advantages by providing high performance facilities, technical expertise, and training to our corporate partners.
Through the Corporate Affiliates Program the same computing power used to conduct award-winning scientific research helps businesses solve their most challenging information-processing problems. For over two decades PSC has been among the world's leading centers in developing and deploying the latest high performance computing technology. At PSC, making efficient and practical use of this technology has always been an important metric, and our users consistently praise the quality of our service and support.
Since every organization has different needs, the program provides flexible support options that combine training, consulting and access to advanced computational resources to meet the specific requirements of each affiliate. Our mission is to enable companies to use high-performance computing to solve difficult problems and gain a competitive advantage. We work with organizations of all sizes to create programs appropriate to their goals and budget.
Intellectual Property Rights
PSC does not generally assert ownership rights to Intellectual Property (IP) that may be created under the agreement, provided PSC only makes available computer time and standard user support. In such cases, all IP would be solely owned by the company who created it. However, if PSC personnel contribute to the creation of IP by (for example) making improvements to algorithms, designing new software, etc. then Carnegie Mellon University IP policies could come into play. In such cases, any IP that is created jointly between a company and PSC would be jointly owned by both parties.
