About the Maryland Industrial Partnerships Program
The Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) program accelerates the commercialization of technology in Maryland by jointly funding collaborative R&D projects between companies and University System of Maryland faculty.

MIPS has funded more than 600 individual projects worth a total value of $164 million, resulting in sales of MIPS-related products of over $16.9 billion.
