The objective of the program is to encourage close cooperation between the industrial, goverment, and academic communities and the BISC program. This collaboration includes a faster transfer and exchange of our research results, implementation of focused research on problems of interest to members, increased members' access to publications, students, and faculty, and involvement in research and education through grants to support our activities at BISC program.
