The mission of CIMS is to create, synthesize, and disseminate industry-relevant information on innovation management and develop current and future generations of innovation management researchers and industry practitioners.  One of the key ways that CIMS achieves both is through funding new research projects that address its corporate members’ interests and issues utilizing the CIMS Innovation Management Framework as the organizing architecture for all research activities.

CIMS welcomes the opportunity to design and implement research projects that address the problems and opportunities companies—whether members of CIMS or not—are experiencing. We’ll match you with the fellow or faculty member who is the best fit for the issue you’re addressing.
